HARRISBURG, PA. WHTM) – A pandemic ordinance affecting medical marijuana in Pennsylvania is now likely to become state law.
The regulation allows pharmacies to serve patients on the roadside and dispense the drug worth up to three months at the same time. The legislature has now passed a bill to make this permanent. Governor Wolf is expected to sign it.
The legislation also aims to reduce the cost of medical marijuana.
“There have been a lot of technical and scientific improvements over the past five years, and we’ve been able to capture them, put them together in a package, and dive really deep into Act 16 and make sure we got all the kinks out. “Said Meredith Büttner, executive director of the Pennsylvania Cannabis Coalition.
A proposal to allow patients to grow marijuana for their own use was rejected.
