COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) – The bill allowing medical marijuana use in Ohio that was passed by the state legislature last month is now on the desk of Governor John Kasich.
Representative Niraj Antani confirmed to 2 NEWs the bill was sent to the governor’s office Wednesday.
Kasich has 10 days to sign the bill into law. If he takes no action the bill will automatically become law after that time period has ended.
The bill would allow patients who have one of about two dozen qualifying medical conditions to buy and use marijuana with a doctor’s prescription. These include cancer, seizure disorders, multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury.
