The state’s medical board approved another round of doctors who are now able to recommend medical marijuana to eligible patients in Ohio.
The third round of certifications now brings the total to 139 doctors, with 50 being added Wednesday.
Approved doctors tend to be concentrated in the major metropolitan areas of Columbus, Cincinnati and Cleveland, but as more are added, the dispersal across the state is evening out.
Columbus has 9 doctors certified to recommend and central Ohio has approximately 25, with a handful in New Albany and Dublin. The full list of state approved doctors can be found here.
Patients will have five dispensaries in Columbus where they can buy medical cannabis and nine total in central Ohio.
