As work continues to set up Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Control Program (MMCP), the state is committed to an open and transparent process. The MMCP website and email updates will make it easy for physicians to stay up-to-date on the progress of this work.
The MMCP website is the official resource for the program and includes frequently asked questions, updates on timelines and the rules process, a way to submit feedback and questions, and more. The site will be updated regularly and you can also sign up to receive email updates on the progress of the MMCP work. Updates will be sent periodically as new information becomes available. The sign up feature is available on the homepage of the MMCP website.
The Ohio Academy of Family Physicians will also be providing regular updates on development of rules and regulations relative to medical marijuana via the Weekly Family Medicine Update and posting them on the OAFP website.
In a related matter, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has announced that it will not re-classify marijuana as a drug with accepted medical uses. The DEA will, however, increase the number of authorized marijuana manufacturers supplying to researchers.
