Ohio gets 370 applications for medical marijuana licenses

Officials in Indiana's neighbor to the east say they've received 370 applications to operate 60 dispensaries that will sell medical marijuana.

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy said on Monday that it had received the applications to operate the dispensaries the state expects to have up and running in about a year. The deadline for applications was Friday.

A board spokesman said no deadline has been set for determining which businesses will get licenses to operate the dispensaries. The state application fee was $5,000.

No single company will be allowed to own more than five dispensaries.

Ohio residents with one of 21 medical conditions can legally buy and use medical marijuana if it's recommended to them by a physician.
