Title: Description: 🌿🌱🌳🙏OHIO RESIDENTS 🌿🌱🌳🐲
So I attended the Ohio Board of Pharmacy meeting yesterday and I wanted to update everyone on what they discussed.
1 ) Our public comment count was 613 and I quote “ as opposed to 8,000” meaning they received only 613 comments this time as opposed to the 8,000 they received on the first round of comments! Do with that info what you will .
They have added 3 studies to support their rule those include the uptick in calls to the Ohio poison control, the FDA heavy metal study and a neonatal study .
They have seen a rise in youth ER visits which prompted the Ohio board of Pediatrics to write a letter to support the obop rule proposal.
One of the board members asked if they had received push back from legislators , and the answer was NO , they have not and then he went on to say they just had a meeting with the house and the senate for budget and there was no mention of it and his words were I think everyone is just focused on cbd!
They have not received word from CSI yet and they are waiting on their recommendation.
I am not sure what the CSI will recommend honestly, we have received emails from businesses stating that they got their information turned in and encouraged their customers to comment . Please keep in mind we will get another public comment period if this moves to jcarr and a public hearing. We will all need to make sure we are ready and we reach every resident and encourage them to make their voices heard during the final step . We will need everyone to show up and be prepared to speak . If there are people in my area I will fit as many in my SUV as I safely can to get them to the public hearing. I would encourage others to do the same .
