FN Group Holdings, which was one 25 cultivators to receive provisional licenses to grow medical marijuana in Ohio, was awarded the certificate of operation Friday after having its facility inspected on Tuesday.

FN Group is one of 12 so-called "Level 2" growers that received provisional licenses from the state to grow medical marijuana in up to 3,000 square feet of space.
