Ohio Regulations

The patient or caregiver must notify the Ohio Board of Pharmacy:

  • Within 7 calendar days of learning that their registry identification card is used fraudulently;
  • Within 7 calendar days of learning that their patient or caregiver registry was accessed without authorization;
  • No later than 30 calendar days of any changes in the information previously provided, other than a change in a qualifying condition; and 
  • Patients deceased (must be reported by the caregiver or patient's legal representative)

Please note, the list of reporting obligations listed above is not an all-inclusive list of every reporting obligation for patients or caregivers under the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program. Please refer to the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program website for more information regarding the reporting obligations for patients and caregivers.

Safely and Legally Transporting Medical Cannabis

Medicinal marijuana must be secure, sealed, and inaccessible during transport. It is not legal to transport medical cannabis in a vehicle unless the medical cannabis is in a reasonably secured, sealed, tamper-evident container and reasonably inaccessible while the vehicle is moving.

Reckless Driving or Driving Under the Influence of Cannabis Is Illegal

It is illegal to operate, navigate, or be in actual physical control of any motor vehicle, trackless trolley, watercraft, aircraft or motorboat while under the influence of cannabis. Nothing in Ohio law prevents the arrest or prosecution of a registered qualifying patient for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of cannabis. 

Federal Laws on Cannabis

Cannabis remains a Controlled Substance under Federal Law. Thus, its possession and use are currently illegal under Federal Law.

Always seek the advice of your attorney before purchasing, possessing, or using cannabis and regarding the resulting risks and penalties that may be imposed by the federal government. The information and materials provided to you by Verilife should not be used as a substitute for the information and knowledge that your attorney should provide to you.
