Breaking News! Pennsylvania Legalizes Medical Marijuana

mmj

After 11 Months in the making, lawmakers in Pennsylvania have passed a bill allowing the cultivation, sales and medical use of marijuana, making it the 24th state in the nation to have legalized marijuana for medical use.

The bill cleared the Pennsylvania state House with a 149-46 vote for approval. This vote comes after the bill already won approval from the Pennsylvania state Senate. Next, the bill will land on the desk of the governor for its final approval. Gov. Tom Wolf has already stated that he will approve it.

“I am proud and excited to sign this bill that will provide long overdue medical relief to patients and families who could benefit from this treatment,” Gov. Tom Wolf said in a statement issued shortly after the House vote.

The Medical Marijuana Act will allow up to 25 grower licences inside the state and 50 medical dispensary permits. Each dispensary with a permit will be able to open up to three locations per licence. As it stands now, there could be a total of up to 150 storefronts in Penn. but that number could expand in the future.

The governor is expected to sign the bill into law during a public ceremony on Sunday.
