Under the Medical Marijuana Control Program rules, Ohio’s Board of Pharmacy determines which applicants get cultivator, processor and dispensary licenses, issued by the Board of Pharmacy. The Administrative Procedures Act (APA) governs due process surrounding licensure, including the opportunity for a hearing and other rights in relation to licensure, fines, suspensions, employee matters and rule violations. Ohio Revised Code Chapter 119 defines administrative procedure, particularly as it refers to the individual areas in 3796:1-3796:5 and their related cannabis statutes.
If you are dealing with administrative issues, you must receive notice that the state is going to take an action (e.g., deny or revoke a license, issue a fine or suspension), and the right to be heard (i.e., an opportunity to request a hearing).
