Ohio AG announces funding for marijuana testingPosted by On


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Ohio Attorney General announced Tuesday
the creation of a Major Marijuana Trafficking Grant Program to help officers
differentiate between hemp and marijuana.

It provides $50,000 to law enforcement agencies to have
large amounts of marijuana tested in accredited laboratories that have the
means to quantify THC.

“Just because the law changed, it doesn’t mean the bad guys
get a ‘get of out of jail free’ card,” Yost said. “We are equipping law
enforcement with the resources to do their jobs.”

Senate Bill 57 changed the Ohio Revised Code definition of
marijuana to exclude hemp, which they define as cannabis containing not more
than 0.3% THC.

Because of this definition change, marijuana can no longer be identified with techniques such as microscopic examination and chemical color testing.
