Plenty of takers for Ohio marijuana licenses

posted by Ken Stevens/Associated Press -

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- State officials say they've received more than 300 applications to operate 60 dispensaries that will sell medical marijuana.

The deadline for applications was Friday, but a spokesman for the Ohio Board of Pharmacy says no deadline has been set for determining which businesses will get licenses to operate the dispensaries.

The state expects to have them up and running in about a year. 

No single company will be allowed to own more than five dispensaries.

Ohioans with one of 21 medical conditions can legally buy and use medical marijuana if it's recommended to them by a physician.
