OHIO: New Dispensary License Drawings Begin Jan. 27, 2022!

Updated: Jul 29, 2023

Ohio, Bowling Green - Breaking news, the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program (OMMCP) will be drawing the next winners for Ohio's expansion of medical marijuana dispensary licenses. OMNI looks forward to more equitable and fair access to medical marijuana for patients in Ohio suffering from short and long-term healthcare issues.

The Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program (OMMCP) Draws New Dispensary License Winners

  • When: Thursday, Jan. 27, 2022

  • Who: The Ohio Lottery Commission

2022: How are licenses winners selected?

A Random Number Generator (RNG) is given to each application.

2022: How many new marijuana dispensaries applied in Ohio?

1,463 applications were submitted to the Ohio Board of Pharmacy.

2022: How many dispensary licenses are available?

Ohio will allow up to 73 new licenses across the state.

2022: What will be the new total number of licensed marijuana dispensaries?

Ohio will have up to 130 licensed medical marijuana retail shops in 2022.

This lottery process is markedly different from the last time, though, when licenses were awarded through a ranked scoring system, which resulted in several lawsuits from applicants who took issue with how their apps were scored. The random drawing was intended to not only speed up the awarding of licenses but also insulate the state from further lawsuits. JEREMY NOBILE Finance/Legal Crain's Cleveland Business
