Ohio Wants Pot-Growing Expert to Adhere to Drug-Free Policy


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio is looking for an expert in growing marijuana who must adhere to its drug-free workplace policy as the state implements a new medical marijuana law. reports the new hire by the Ohio Department of Commerce would help write rules for medical marijuana cultivators.

The chosen contractor would be held to Ohio’s drug-free workplace policy, which currently doesn’t allow for medical marijuana use.

A commerce department spokesman couldn’t say Friday whether the contractor’s employees would have to clear a pre-employment drug test.

The contractor would research best practices and recommend how they would work with Ohio’s patient needs in the new Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program.

The job was posted last week. The state is accepting applications through Wednesday. The department has budgeted $50,000 for the work.

      We’re already circulating an exponentially better amendment than their shit bill so they can SAY they support it and want to put patients first. Also this one is barely over a single page in fairly understandable language and carves out NO special out of state investors to profit. It also includes declaring our RIGHTS to the plant (both as marijuana and as hemp,) and the unlimited personal cultivation indoors or outdoors, sharing, use, transportation, possession, and extractions without volatile chemicals ( you can make butter but you have to buy dabs.) It’s medic(IN)al, so would be treated like Tylenol, or Tums that you must be 18 to buy; but with the right to share combined with cultivation unlimited the stores would have to charge like $80-100 an ounce just to be competitive. Anyone who’s in Ohio and willing to at least read it even if you don’t want to volunteer, the amendment is at

    Tip: You can’t truly be a cannabis expert if you don’t use it at least occasionally.
