The purpose of this project is to survey medical marijuana patients and potential patients to evaluate their experiences and satisfaction with the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program (OMMCP) to date.
This research aims to fill in a critical gap in our understanding of the medical marijuana program in Ohio and to find out how the people potentially impacted by the current regime perceive its performance thus far. Doing so allows for a unique examination into the efficacy of the structure of OMMCP and how this state’s initial experience with marijuana reform can inform the larger national conversation that is currently underway.
Participants will be asked to fill out an anonymous online survey in which we ask them about their experience obtaining marijuana in the state of Ohio for medical purposes. The survey will take approximately eight minutes to complete.
