    I'm surprised there is no discussion here yet about MMJ in Ohio now that we have (theoretically, or will have) it in Ohio.

    Any would-be patients care to comment, whether on the new law or on anything else related?

    It's my understanding that doctors are not yet protected from liability and thus will not be recommending it at least until all of the guidelines are written, which will likely be sometime next year. I think I heard that the Ohio Bar Association (and/or Ohio Supreme Court) still does not permit lawyers in the state to advise on matters relating to marijuana-related businesses, though I'm less sure about anything pertaining to doctors or patients. I've also heard that the list of approved conditions which will make patients eligible for MMJ will be relatively short, and the criteria very strict. The biggest let down so far is the continued prohibition of home growing, which seems needless and archaic, in my eyes.

    So am I wrong about all of this or should I be more optimistic? It all seems so murky still. I myself have multiple legitimate diagnoses that would qualify me for MMJ in just about any other state where it is legal, though nothing on the order of cancer or AIDS or anything quite that serious. I do, however, know for a fact that MMJ helps mitigate my symptoms and certainly promotes better outcomes than the drugs I've been prescribed before, and I would sure love to be able to live my life to the fullest without having to worry about silly prosecution (not to mention the social stigma attached to something that is illegal, and the implications in the workplace, which are considerable).

    Here is the draft, glad we gave up a 10 site monopoly for a 18 site w/o the right to grow.

    Based on the massive feedback they received that 18 grows wasn't any where near enough for the expected 180,000-200,000 patients, they increased the numbers.
    To ..... 24...

    12 large (Level 1) growing sites would be 25,000 square feet;
    12 small ones (Level 2) would be 3,000 square feet.
    Growers would pay a $20,000 application fee and $180,000 license fee for a Level 1 license
    and a $2,000 application fee and $18,000 license fee for a Level 2 license.
    That's a total of 336,000sf for the estimated 188,000 patients. 1.8sf per patient. 1.8sf for veg and bud.
    Problem solved.....
