COLUMBUS, Ohio- State regulators have given the green light to a northeast Ohio medical marijuana cultivator so that it can start planting its crop.

Ohio's Department of Commerce says Buckeye Relief is the first large-scale grower to pass inspection and receive its operation certificate.

The company will begin planting immediately at its cultivation facility in Eastlake, just outside Cleveland.

The state says Buckeye Relief plans to have its finished product ready by the end of the year.

Ohio's delays in selecting processors and allowing cultivators to grow plants have pushed the availability of medical marijuana further past the state Legislature's Sept. 8 deadline.

Two other smaller sites already have been issued certificates of operation to grow plants.
