Ohio became the 25th state to legalize medical marijuana earlier this year but the debate about cannabis reform is far from over in the Buckeye State. Rules for the medical marijuana program will be written in the coming months, and advocates as well as the national group that had spearheaded a competing ballot initiative are pushing lawmakers to make good on promises made when they approved the program. What will Ohio’s medical marijuana program look like? And what does the law mean for future marijuana reform efforts in Ohio?
