State auditor talks about Ohio’s marijuana mess

Ohio Auditor Dave Yost says the state’s marijuana grow licensing process was an “epic fail”.

Ohio handed out 24 marijuana grow licenses, but records already show there were problems in picking the winners and losers.

Local 12’s Investigative Reporter Duane Pohlman sat down in a rare, one-on-one interview with Yost to find out how he’s going to investigate what went wrong.

It’s next to impossible to get the state auditor to talk about a continuing investigation, let alone the highest profile case in Ohio right now, but that’s exactly what Duane did.

While it’s not clear whether Ohio’s epic failure of medical marijuana was a mistake or something more, Yost is already saying that the licensing process was so bad that it may change the way Ohio handles all future contracts.
