Ohio to decide who gets medical marijuana grow licenses
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Ohio will soon decide who will be allowed to grow medical marijuana.
The state accepted 185 applications in June but now has to pick 24 people who will get the lucrative licenses.
Investors say they plan to spend millions if they're selected.
Among those who applied, construction magnates, toy tycoons, and an heir to the Jim Beam whiskey fortune. Also included, former Cincinnati Bearcat Oscar Robertson.
The state isn't saying yet when those marijuana grow licenses will be issued.
