Out of 56 medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of Ohio, only 18 are operational and many face having their licenses taken away due to the delays.

The state’s regulators had divided the state into regions and allotted a number of dispensaries to operate in each region. The amount was largely based on population.

While all 56 dispensaries have received provisional licenses, many of them have not finished construction or cleared final inspections in order to be certified as operational.

Earlier this month the Ohio Board of Pharmacy, one of the state’s medical marijuana regulators, met with representatives of about 30 dispensaries that have not received certification by May 31st.

Dispensary representatives had provided the pharmacy board a range of reasons why they are behind, explained Curtis Passafume, who is a member of the pharmacy board.
