MEDICAL MARIJUANA

Ohio's medical marijuana law

In the state of Ohio, people can legally possess and use marijuana for certain medical conditions. The conditions include:

  • Pain that is either chronic and severe or intractable

  • PTSD

  • Traumatic brain injuries

The law allows people with those conditions to use edibles, oils, patches, plant material and tinctures. Marijuana can be inhaled through vaporization, but not smoked.

​Home growth is also prohibited.
