Just south of the intersection of U.S. 23 and U.S. 30 in rural Wyandot County, workers have nearly finished one of Ohio’s newest medical marijuana dispensaries.
The new shop at 17043 County Highway 113 in Harpster will severely reduce driving time for medical marijuana patients along the Lincoln Highway corridor, according to Michele Minehart, the Ohio Cannabis Company location’s manager.
The store will legally sell registered patients all forms of marijuana, except the smokable kind, which is not legal under Ohio’s medical marijuana laws.
“We will have edibles, chocolates, gummies, things like that, things that taste good,” Minehart said. “Those are really great for folks who need pain control or they need to feel the effects over a longer amount of time because they last a little longer.”
Tinctures and vaporizers will also be sold from the Wyandot County store.
The grand opening is tentatively scheduled for March 23, but that is subject to change.
Number of Ohio dispensaries doubled
The dispensary is part of the state’s second wave of such marijuana shops allowed to open in the Buckeye State.
The Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program approved 70 dispensaries to open in 2019 when medical cannabis became legal. Then, in May of 2022, they doubled the number of licenses by offering 70 more.
Regulators broke the state into sections based on population. One of those districts consists of Crawford, Marion, Wyandot and Hardin counties.
