(Columbus, OH) Ohio leaders will institute a statewide medical marijuana tracking system.
A seed-to-sale tracking system is one of the ways state regulators will implement the Buckeye state's budding medical marijuana program, spending six million more dollars over the next two years to set up the system. That new system will track pot plants from cultivation through sale.
The state will be repaid using revenues from licensing fees.
The Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program may also set up a payment system that would allow noncash payments between marijuana businesses, patients and state vendors-- because banks are reluctant or even unwilling to take part in transactions that are still illegal under federal law.
