Medical cannabis sales in Pennsylvania began yesterday as six out of the 10 dispensaries so far approved by the state were legally allowed to open their doors. The program rolled out ahead of schedule, less than two years after the law was signed by Gov. Tom Wolf.

“We reached this historic day through a lot of hard work by many dedicated people at the Pennsylvania Department of Health and its Office of Medical Marijuana, and through the support of advocacy groups, the General assembly, and especially Pennsylvanians – the parents, doctors, and patients – whose tireless efforts helped make today a reality.” – Wolf in a press release

Wolf indicated that there are more than 700 physicians signed up with the state to recommend medical cannabis, along with more than 17,000 patients already registered with the state program, albeit only about 3,000 have received their medical cannabis ID cards.

The dispensaries approved and operating as of Feb. 16:

Creso Yeltrah in Butler

Keystone Canna Remedies in Bethlehem

Solevo Wellness in Pittsburgh

Organic Remedies in Enola

Dispensaries at which cannabis will be available beginning Feb. 17

Terra Vida Holistic Center in Sellersville

Keystone Shops in Devon

“Our work continues to increase access to this important medical tool. Our teams are crisscrossing the state inspecting dispensaries as they are ready to open their doors. Each week we will be adding locations where Pennsylvanians suffering from serious medical conditions can get this medication.” –  Dr. Rachel Levine, acting health secretary and physician general in a press release

Another 81 dispensaries are expected to open throughout the state over the coming months.
