Medical marijuana is legal in Ohio, but recreational marijuana is still illegal.
In 2016, Ohio’s medical marijuana program was established with the passage of House Bill 523, which allows patients with certain medical conditions to use medical marijuana with a doctor’s recommendation. The program allows for the use of various forms of medical marijuana, such as oils, tinctures, edibles, and plant material.
However, the possession and use of recreational marijuana remains illegal in Ohio. Possession of up to 100 grams of marijuana is a minor misdemeanor, which carries a maximum fine of $150. Possession of more than 100 grams can result in more severe penalties, including jail time and fines.
It is important to note that the laws surrounding marijuana are constantly evolving, and it is important to stay informed about any changes or updates to the laws in your specific jurisdiction.
