The legalization of medical marijuana in Ohio presents opportunities in long term care, but it also presents some interesting dilemmas and challenges.

This presentation will discuss the current state of the federal and state laws on use of medical marijuana in Ohio and considerations for operationalizing it in residential care facilities as Ohio's Medical Marijuana Control Program comes into operation.
