Bowling Green to be home of medical marijuana dispensary

BOWLING GREEN, OH (WTOL) - Despite the delay to the start of medical marijuana in Ohio, Wood County will still have a dispensary.

One site in Bowling Green will soon be home to a medical marijuana dispensary.

What use to be the Glass City Credit Union will now be a dispensary operating under the name "Glass City Alternatives".

They have six months to demonstrate compliance in order to get an official certificate of operation.

The law requires marijuana businesses to be 500 feet from any church, school, library or playground.

The Wood county dispensary is less than a mile from BGSU.

This makes it accessible for students who may pursue a medical marijuana  card.

"Its is one of those things that if it wasn't in wood county I'd have to drive far away, and as a college student that isn't always an option so having one closer would make it more accessible to me," said Wood County resident, Jacob Fausnaugh.

Medical marijuana patients are required to register with the state board of pharmacy for their cards to be legally recognized.
