Coronavirus: Ohio Now Allows 'Drive-Thru' For Medical Marijuana

·1 min read

OHIO — In an effort to reduce the spread of the new coronavirus, Ohio state officials will temporarily allow "walk-up" and "drive-thru" transactions at the state's medical marijuana dispensaries. The Ohio Board Of Pharmacy made the policy change Friday.

"This is a choice for dispensaries to consider; it is not mandated that you implement sales outside of the dispensary department," the board wrote. "Please consider your safety and the safety of your employees if you decide to implement this option."
