Medical-marijuana businesses in Ohio face obstacles, opportunities

After five years of quiet but rapid growth making equipment for the marijuana industry in other states, Apeks Supercritical is ready to ramp up business in Ohio.

With passage of a state medical-marijuana law that takes effect Sept. 8, the company not only expects to see a jump in manufacturing orders, but it also plans to get into the business as a marijuana processor.

“We had to work from the sidelines,” said Andy Joseph, Apeks’ CEO. “Now, I’m very optimistic about doing business in Ohio. I think it’s going to be fantastic.

“This isn’t just a bunch of stoners trying to get high all the time,” he said. “This is real business and real opportunities for the state of Ohio. This is truly an economic-development opportunity for the state.”
