Map: Proposed stoner sites for Cbus marijuana dispensaries

Will Clintonville be smelling “loud” soon? Or will it be downtown? Or the Arena District? Who knows, it may be all three by the time the Board of Pharmacy sorts through all 69 Franklin County applications and choses five locations for licensed medical marijuana dispensaries.

Since the odds of being chosen are slim, most applicant have also put their name in the hat to be a cultivator or processor. Everyone’s trying to get in on the cannabis game…except cities including Hilliard, Grandview, Dublin, and Upper Arlington who have also either prohibited or are considering prohibiting legal marijuana.

In order to be considered for a dispensary destination, the location cannot be near schools, churches, public libraries, public playgrounds or public parks, reports Columbus Business First.
