Ohio’s State Medical Board has certified 222 doctors to recommend medical marijuana to patients who have one of the 21 qualifying conditions.
This week the board had certified 38 physicians to recommend medicinal marijuana in the state.
According to state regulators, Ohio’s program is expected to start with far fewer patients and say more physicians will sign on as the program grows.
The doctors can be searched on cleveland.com and the database is updated monthly after the medical board approves physician’s applications for the certification.
Physicians who participate in the program must hold an active unrestricted MD or DO licensed from the state’s Medical Board. They must also complete two hours of continuing education credits about marijuana as well as Ohio’s qualifying medical conditions.
