Patients in Ohio’s medical marijuana program have long complained about the complicated way the state calculates how much marijuana they can buy in a 90-day period.
That could soon change.
The Ohio Board of Pharmacy is reviewing the “90-day supply” after receiving more than 50 public comments about how the existing limits are burdensome.
Ohio limits patients to 8 ounces of dried flower, or the equivalent amount of THC in products, in 90 days. But that amount is reduced by the products purchased in the last 90 days on a rolling basis, as well as how many days have elapsed in the current 90-day recommendation period. Furthermore, the minimum amount of dried flower that can be sold – 2.83 grams – doesn’t multiply into 90 days, so patients lose two days from their allowance for what should be a single-day unit.
The result: Patients are rarely able to buy what they need, when they need it. Many report “running out of days” far in advance of the 90th day of their recommendation. The Enquirer first reported problems with the 90-day supply in March 2019 and again in January. [Read more at The Cincinnati Enquirer]
