From campus to suburban Westerville
Ohio has already licensed 56 locations that can begin selling medical marijuana once it becomes legal this fall. Of those, five are located here in Columbus. These include: Greenleaf Apothecaries (111 Vine St.), 127 OH (1361 Georgesville Rd.), Harvest of Ohio (2950 N. High St. and almost certain to be confused for nearby Harvest Bar + Kitchen), Verdant Creations (Cassady Avenue, address TBD) and Cannamed Therapeutics (656 Grandview Ave. and adjacent to a music venue whose summer lineup includes appearances from bands such as Summer Vibes, Broccoli Samurai and Freekbass & the Bump Assembly, making it one of the more on-the-nose medical pot dispensaries).
With more dispensaries on the way, we thought we'd try to predict some of the next locales where, uh, locals might be able to score some (medicinal) greenery.

Cons: No one will ever be able to locate the parking lot on first visit.
Pros: Has a built-in name ready to roll (the Dube Locker).
Just honk twice once you're parked out front.
Like the university isn't going to try and get its cut. (Note: None of the profits will be used to pay football players, who are amateur athletes, after all, and not an exploited source of revenue. This is an important distinction to keep in mind when discussing the NCAA.)

Though generally we'd advise against getting greens on your pizza. Especially broccoli.
