Cresco Labs has been in the medical cannabis business in Ohio since 2018. The company has a manufacturing facility in Greene County and five dispensaries across the state.

In Yellow Springs, most of what they produce is cannabis buds and edibles. They support Issue 2 and said they’d expand into the state’s recreational market if it passes.

“We’re really excited about the opportunity to provide that to a greater market,” said Joe Chek, Cresco Labs Facility Director. Chek told News Center 7 how he thinks a potentially legal recreational cannabis market would impact Ohio’s existing medical cannabis industry.

“We know that the market is going to grow by, you know, sheer number of people that can legally purchase and consume cannabis. Right now, there’s a relatively limited number of medical patients in the state,” Chek said.
