Ohio to Accept Schools’ Medical Cannabis Research Applications

Universities and colleges in Ohio will soon be allowed to apply for medical cannabis testing licenses. At the same time, private companies and small businesses will have to wait one more year to start applying.

This measure could turn out to be an issue for the state’s medical marijuana program. Moreover, the question about the possibility of Ohio schools applying for the licenses remains open.

Although the law in Ohio allows colleges and universities to receive medical marijuana testing licenses, they could risk their federal funding since the herb is still illegal in the U.S.

According to Columbus Business First, the state’s Department of Commerce is going to accept the schools' applications from Sept. 11 to Sept. 22. The application fee for the license is $2,000; the amount is nonrefundable. The license winners will also have to pay an additional $20,000 annual renewal fee. There are no limitations on the number of issued licenses.
