I am a new vape/smoke shop owner in Ohio and in September 2018, Ohio will legalize medical marijuana for some specified conditions. It’s definitely not a game changer for the state. I doubt it will be insanely popular due to restrictions and it won’t be recreational either. Demand for pipes and papers and things of that nature should increase, but I’m skeptical about how much it will go up by. Getting a license to sell medical cannabis is also out of the question (I think) because they issue such few licenses at a hefty price.
I’d like to know how I can prepare for this change to make more money for my new shop and any future changes in case it ever becomes recreational.
Side note: What are the laws about selling paraphernalia now if a customer says that they are purchasing a pipe for their legal marijuana? How should I handle that sort of thing?
