Today the Board of Pharmacy announced the winners of up to 56 dispensary licenses out of 376 applications statewide.

The licensees are expected to open storefront operations later this year when Ohio’s new medical marijuana industry launches.

The licenses are distributed across 28 geographic districts. Three districts, including one that covers Miami County, did not have viable or any applications.

State pharmacy officials and North Highland, a consultant, spent six months reviewing and scoring applications based on business, operations and patient care plans as well as compliance with existing laws.

The Board of Pharmacy also hired an IT security consultant to double check the data integrity during the application process, after the Ohio Department of Commerce discovered scoring problems after the fact.

The Board of Pharmacy expects to launch its patient registry in July.

Also, the Board of Pharmacy went live Monday with its medical marijuana toll-free help line at 1-833-4OH-MMCP (1-833-464-6627). The help line will respond to questions from patients, caregivers and health professionals about adverse reactions to medical marijuana and other related issues.
