Eighteen businesses have applied for medical marijuana dispensary
licenses in Lucas County, with Maumee and Holland joining Toledo as
communities where businesses hope to sell medicinal pot, according to
the Ohio Board of Pharmacy.

The board received 376 applications for a maximum of 60 possible
licenses, though some businesses filed applications for multiple
sites. The state has also split Ohio into four regional districts, and
northwest Ohio will only receive 10 dispensary licenses, with 39
applications competing for those spots.

The restrictions are even more complex, though, as each region is
broken down further into districts. Lucas County, for instance, will
only receive two dispensaries, creating heavy competition among the 18
applications in Toledo, Maumee, and Holland. A district made up of
Wood, Hancock and Henry counties will only get one. Three firms have
applied to open in Wood County, and no companies have applied to open
a dispensary in Hancock or Henry counties.

A number of proposed dispensaries have either had permits approved by
the city to open, or have approached the Toledo Plan Commission.

House Bill 523, the Ohio law that in 2016 legalized marijuana for
medical use only, left it up to state agencies to determine the rules
for medical marijuana's cultivation, processing, and sale. Rules and
licenses for growing, processing, dispensing and testing have trickled
out in stages over the past year, with cultivator licenses already
issued, and processing licenses being reviewed now.

The medical marijuana system in Ohio must be operational by September.
