Overview

This township-focused session will take a non-partisan approach to preparing your community for the new medical marijuana laws in Ohio. To start, this session will explain what the difference is between cultivation, processing, testing and dispensaries, and how these items are currently defined in the Ohio Revised Code. If you want to permit and encourage any of the allowable medical marijuana business aspects/processes in your community, this session will address how to prepare your zoning code to allow these uses. If you do not want to permit any of the allowable medical marijuana business aspects/processes in your community, this session will also address the steps you can take to prepare your zoning code from banning these uses from your community. We will also discuss current trends and future outlooks related to medical marijuana regulations in the State of Ohio. Painesville Township, and their creative approach to medical marijuana rules in their community, will be discussed as a case study as part of this session.
