There are a few forms that you will need in order to get a medical marijuana card in Ohio. The first is an application form, which you can find on the website of the Ohio Board of Pharmacy. You will also need a physician's certification form, which your doctor will need to complete in order for you to be eligible for a medical marijuana card. Lastly, you will need to provide proof of residency in Ohio.


To register for an Ohio medical marijuana card, you must be a resident of Ohio and at least 18 years old. You must also have a qualifying medical condition, which includes cancer, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, and more. You can find a full list of qualifying conditions on the Ohio Department of Health website.

Once you've determined that you meet the eligibility requirements, you can begin the registration process. You can do this online or by mail. To register online, you'll need to create an account on the Ohio Medical Marijuana Patient Registry website. Once you've created an account, you can submit your application and pay the registration fee.


The process of submitting an application for an Ohio medical marijuana card is simple. You just need to provide your name, date of birth, and current address. You will also need to provide a photo ID and proof of residency in Ohio.

Once the application is complete, it can be mailed or hand-delivered to the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program.

Ohio Public Consumption Laws

Public consumption is illegal in Ohio. You can only consume or use your medical marijuana in private settings. Due to the federal prohibition on cannabis, you cannot use cannabis in national parks, federal buildings like courthouses, or federally subsidized housing.

If you have medical cannabis on your person, be sure to carry your medical marijuana card.

Ohio Cannabis DUI Laws

Ohio considers operating a vehicle while intoxicated with marijuana a drugged driving charge. The state has implied consent, meaning you submit to testing when you drive. The legal limit for THC is 10 ng/ml for urine and 2 ng/ml for blood.

Law enforcement officers are empowered to detain individuals when they suspect impaired driving. When using medical marijuana to manage your symptoms, plan alternative modes of transportation.
