Ohio's Northeast District consists of dispensaries in Lorain, Cuyahoga, Summit, Stark and Lake counties.

OH has licensed 56 locations that can sell medical marijuana once it becomes legal this fall, including five in Franklin County.

Overall, there were 376 applications for the medical marijuana dispensaries.

"Buckeye Botanicals LLC", in Jackson County, Ohio was awarded a dispensary license, according to the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program.

The dispensary businesses are not permitted to be within 500 feet of a school, church, public library, public playground, public park or community addiction service provider.

"I don't think it will occur on September 8", said Kevin Murphy, an attorney who specializes in the medical marijuana business.

The Sylvania Avenue location in Toledo will be operated by GTI Ohio LLC, which runs dispensaries and manufacturing facilities in five states.

State law does not allow marijuana to be sold to be smoked.

"When I look at the most recent voting record, where nearly 70 percent of people in that precinct alone voted in favor of medicinal marijuana, it told me that folks in the neighborhood felt this is a viable business", Mr. Waniewski said.

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy didn't give an explanation as to why the company was disqualified.

The medical marijuana can only be obtained for 21 medical conditions and obtained from a state-licensed dispensary with a doctor's prescription.

In total, approximately 60 dispensaries were licensed across the state. "We believe the provisional licensees selected will ensure access to medical marijuana for Ohioans".

But the board already has staff trained to evaluate the dispensaries once they open their doors in September, Ms. Simon added.
