Shon Brantley, of Johnstown, leaves Beyond / Hello at 416 Main St. in downtown Johnstown, with medical marijuana during the dispensary's grand opening on Tuesday, July 30, 2019.

The operator behind one of Johnstown’s medical marijuana dispensaries has received approval to open an 8,000-square-foot processing facility in Ohio.

Franklin Biosciences, a company under Florida-based Jushi Holdings, received authorization to begin operations at the Columbus, Ohio, site, which will enable the company to begin supplying the Ohio market.

Jushi operates the Beyond/Hello dispensary in downtown Johnstown, offering medical cannabis products developed by Pennsylvania-approved growing facilities.

The separate Ohio facility is permitted to serve 53 dispensaries within Ohio’s border.
