Four local businesses have been approved to sell recreational marijuana in the Mahoning Valley.

Three companies in Mahoning County had their applications for dual-use approved:

  • Riviera Creek Holdings LLC (Youngstown) - dual-use cultivator
  • Riviera Creek Holdings II, LLC (Youngstown) - dual-use processor
  • Quest Wellness Ohio II, LLC aka Leaf Relief (Youngstown) - dual-use dispensary

In Trumbull County, B Cubed Operations, LLC aka A Cut Above (Hubbard) was also approved as a dual-use dispensary.

The application period for dual-use licenses began on June 7.

Although these businesses have been approved for recreational marijuana sales, it's still unclear when they can begin selling it. The state is still deciding on rules for recreational sales.
