Ohio has seen $1.1 million in medical marijuana sales since the program began this year.
But with just eight dispensaries open statewide, 10 Investigates found some patients faced with limited supplies and high prices have turned elsewhere for their medical marijuana.
But that activity also comes with a risk of landing in trouble with law enforcement.
The town of Morenci, Michigan has a population of 2200 people.
It’s also home to three medical marijuana dispensaries.
Managers at all three locations – Stateline Wellness, Sticky Greens and Michigan Cannakings – told 10 Investigates that the majority of their patients come from Ohio.
“We have 2700 patients – (Ohio patients) are probably 60 percent of it,” said Kyle Schaffner with Cannakings.
