The Risks Of Dealing With Cannabis As A Pharmacist

Today on Mission Supercritical, we’re joined by Scott Miglin, Chief Pharmacist for Ohio Grown Therapies, one of the licensed dispensaries in Ohio (artist’s rendering below). Scott has been a pharmacist for 24 years, and will be the director at the dispensary when it opens. Scott attended Ohio Northern where he got his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy.


Scott got into the cannabis industry when the state of Ohio’s draft legislation implied that pharmacists would need to run the dispensaries. Scott jokingly sent a text to a pharmacist friend to tell him he’d found their new career path. And here we are, several years down the line! Andy and Scott speak about the risks of dealing with cannabis, from a pharmacist’s viewpoint. Scott also discusses the importance of the DEA license doctors use to prescribe controlled substances, and how it could be perceived as a conflict of interest.
