NELSONVILLE — Hocking College announced on Tuesday it is applying as the first college or university to serve as a testing laboratory site for Ohio’s medical cannabis law.
Passed in 2016, the state’s medical cannabis — or medical marijuana — law mandates a state college or university test cannabis products before they are sold to patients.
After the application deadline, which stretches from Sept. 11-22, the state will have 90 days to announce which applicants it will grant permission to serve as a testing laboratory. Hocking College officials said Tuesday the college does not anticipate the state will take all 90 days to announce the winner if it is the only college or university to apply.
