John Kasich makes medical marijuana legal in Ohio

John Kasich

OHIO (NEWS10) – Ohio Governor John Kasich signed a bill Wednesday legalizing medical marijuana in the state.

Lawmakers passed the bill last month to head off a threatened ballot issue aimed at relaxing access to medical marijuana.

The new law takes effect in 90 days, requiring that medical marijuana be available within two years.

Patients won’t likely be able to buy medical marijuana in Ohio until 2017 or early 2018.
