Wow!! Ohio’s medical marijauna program is bringing in some big bucks! The program will bring in about $11 million in fees alone, even before the system is up and running.
According to The Cincinnati Enquirer, that figure includes about $5.2 million in non-refundable application fees already collected from more than 650 prospective medical marijuana businesses.
About $2.6 million in licensing fees from 25 large and small cultivators who received provisional growing license, and another $2.6 million in annual license renewal fees from growers. This seems to be some big revenue for the state.
