First tweaks to Recreational Marijuana to come via rules process, not legislature, House rep says

Administrative Rules to Drive Changes to Ohio's Recreational Marijuana Law, Legislative Action on Hold.

As the Ohio House resists any quick reforms to the state’s new recreational marijuana law, most changes that state officials want to make – like banning sales to minors and advertising restrictions -- will likely be done not through legislation, but via administrative rules slated to take effect in early September, according to state Rep. Jamie Callender, a Lake County Republican.

As Jeremy Pelzer reports, Callender said that changes that would require legislation, like altering the state’s marijuana tax framework, might not come until a new legislative session begins next year. Gov. Mike DeWine, though, reiterated Monday that he wants lawmakers to take immediate action to allow existing medical marijuana dispensaries to sell recreational weed and to restrict sales of low-level-THC “delta-8″ products.
