Medical marijuana card for minors in Ohio

In Ohio, medical marijuana is accessible to minors. If the patient is under eighteen years of age, a certified physician can still provide a medical marijuana recommendation. Nevertheless, in such cases, the responsibility falls upon the patient's parent or guardian, who must apply on behalf of the minor patient and also assume the role of their caregiver. The caregiver role is essential: the parent or guardian is required to submit a caregiver registration form via the OMMCP website and successfully fulfill all necessary screening procedures to gain eligibility.

Register a caregiver with Heally in Ohio

Fortunately, the procedure for becoming a registered medical marijuana caregiver in Ohio is relatively straightforward, though there are a few minor steps to navigate through in order to complete the registration process.

As per the resource guidelines for medical marijuana caregivers in Ohio, the process is uncomplicated and can be accomplished with ease by following these steps:

  • Registry Identification Cards: It's mandatory for both patients and caregivers wishing to procure medical marijuana to have a state-issued medical marijuana patient ID card.
  • Caregiver Eligibility: An individual who is 21 or older can act as a caregiver for a maximum of two medical marijuana patients. Conversely, each patient is allowed up to two caregivers.
  • Patient and Caregiver Registration: The recommending physician, or their delegate, is responsible for submitting the caregiver's and patient's names to the Ohio Board of Pharmacy's medical marijuana patient and caregiver registry upon issuing a recommendation for medical marijuana.

In light of the temporary guidelines established by the Board of Pharmacy due to the COVID-19 pandemic, caregivers now have the option to submit their Caregiver Registration application directly to the state board. However, this option is limited to patients who are already registered and active in the system.

Marijuana laws in Ohio

Medical marijuana in Ohio is regulated under the stringent parameters of the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program. For legal compliance, individuals must have a verified qualifying medical condition, engage the assistance of a physician to enroll in the state registry and acquire marijuana strictly from a state-sanctioned dispensary. Individuals are allowed to hold only up to a 90-day supply and are prohibited from cultivating or obtaining marijuana by any other means.

Recreational marijuana is unlawful in Ohio, but possession does not always lead to criminal charges. If found in possession of less than 100 grams (approximately 3.5 ounces), it's regarded as a minor misdemeanor, subject to a $150 fine. Notably, a minor misdemeanor typically does not result in a criminal record. However, possession exceeding 100 grams is criminal and can be charged as a standard misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the quantity. The ramifications upon conviction can vary, factoring in elements such as the quantity possessed and any aggravating factors. Unconditionally, cultivation of marijuana is illegal, with those caught likely facing possession charges.
