Ohio doesn’t recognize a medical cannabis card issued in other states.

However, the medical marijuana treatment law requires that the state medical Board of Pharmacy attempt to negotiate and enter into reciprocity with patients from other states who have a medical marijuana recommendation.

That depends on the State you visit; some states accept out-of-state MMJ cards while others do not. We recommend checking local medical cannabis rules and regulations before traveling.

No. An Ohio marijuana cardholder nor an adult caregiver are not authorized to cultivate marijuana at home.

The State of Ohio does not allow public consumption of cannabis, even those in the medical marijuana program are not allowed to smoke marijuana in public. However, many cities have decriminalized fewer than 100 grams of recreational and medical marijuana possessed by residents.
