Medical Marijuana was legalized in the state of Ohio on June 8th, 2016. This was the 25th state to allow the legalization of Medical Marijuana. This legalization also offers a nice payday for the state of
Ohio, as the state tax goes directly to the state general fund. There is currently a 5.75% sales tax on the purchase of medical cannabis, allowing for the tax to go back to the state.
There is a list of medical reasons that qualify patients for a Medical Cannabis license including, but not limited to Lupus, Cancer, brain injuries, chronic pain, arthritis, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. This is significant as not all individuals in the state of Ohio will qualify as a Medical Cannabis patient. There are currently 130 cannabis dispensaries in the state of Ohio. Initially, the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy, which regulates the dispensaries, set the limit to 57 total locations. This number was modified to 130 to fulfill the increasing demand for medical Cannabis in Ohio, as the list of approved conditions that qualify for cannabis treatment is growing. With the number of dispensaries anticipated to double in the next year, the Ohio Medical Cannabis market is incredibly competitive. Ensuring your business is compliant with all state and federal regulations is critical to the viability and success of your company.
The state requirements in Ohio for Cannabis are only for the legalization of Medical Marijuana, meaning cannabis cannot be purchased for recreational use. The Ohio State Pharmacy Board makes the decisions in regard to how many dispensaries can be opened, as well as the security required for protection of products and inventory. Each dispensary in Ohio requires that a functional secure storage vault be installed for the the safe-keeping of cannabis product and inventory.
According to Rule 3796:6-3-16 B8, businesses must keep their vault “Securely locked and protected from unauthorized entry. The Vault shall have dual authentication or biometric access with a unique code for each employee. A safe exclusively used for storage of currency, with separate access controls, shall be maintained in the product vault”. International Vault offers modular vault systems compliant with the DEA, as well as the above requirements.
Federally, Cannabis is listed as a schedule I drug and is still deemed federally illegal. Individual states have legalized the use of marijuana, both for medical and recreational use, depending on the state. CFR SEC 1301.72 details the security requirements for the secure storage of controlled substances, monitored and enforced by the DEA. These parameters regulate the security measures for the manufacturing, distribution, and dispensing of such controlled substances. Federal storage requirements for cannabis run in parallel with the stringent Ohio state requirements. Considering Ohio’s state regulations mirror federal DEA storage requirements, your business will be ready and equipped for either state or federal inspections if you opt to install an International Vault system.
