Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Dispensary Law

 

On April 17, 2016, Governor Tom Wolf signed SB 3 into Law, establishing Pennsylvania’s compassionate medical cannabis law, after receiving final approval from the House on April 13, 2016, and initial Senate approval on May 12, 2015. The law took effect on May 17, 2016, and the Department of Health had six months from that date to issue temporary regulations, with implementation of regulations estimated for completion by early 2018.

 

What Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Patients Need to Know:

 

Medical marijuana refers to cannabis obtained by a certified Pennsylvania resident with a serious medical condition, as certified by a physician and registered by the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Once registered and in possession of a physician’s certificate, they must apply for a medical marijuana ID card and submit the application fee. Patients then may obtain medical marijuana from an approved dispensary with a valid permit. As of March 2017, the Department of Health is currently developing the process to obtain a medical marijuana ID card.

 

Patients may designate caregivers, registered with and approved by the Department, who will be able to obtain medical marijuana from approved dispensaries and deliver it to the patient. Caregivers must be 21 years of age or older, or if the patient is a minor, the parent or legal guardian of that patient. A single caregiver may be designated by no more than five patients, and a patient may designate up to two caregivers at one time.

 

Medical marijuana will be available in pill, oil, topical, vaporization, tincture and liquid form. Medical marijuana may not be distributed to patients in plant or dry leaf form.

 

It is unlawful to smoke medical cannabis, to incorporate medical cannabis into edible form (with the exception of a caregiver aiding a patient in ingestion), to grow medical marijuana unless in receipt of a valid permit, and to grow or dispense cannabis unless authorized under the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

 

As of February 2017, medical marijuana is not currently available in Pennsylvania. Under temporary regulations issued by the Department of Health called the Safe Harbor Letter, a parent or guardian of a minor under 18 years of age may apply for a Safe Harbor Letter, allowing them to lawfully obtain medical cannabis from another state or United States territory to administer to the minor. This temporary regulation will expire May 17th, 2018. More information is available on the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s website.

 

What Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Growers/Processors Need to Know:

 

The final date to submit a medical cannabis grower/processor application was March 20th, 2017. The Pennsylvania Office of Medical Marijuana received 457 applications, 177 of which were for potential grower/processors.

 

On June 21, 2017 the Pennsylvania Department of health announced that the awarding of growing and processing permits to the 12 organizations. Those 12 organizations are the first win permits in the state and will have six months to begin operations.

 

The organizations are: Prime Wellness of Pennsylvania, Franklin Labs, Pennsylvania Medical Solutions, Standard Farms, Ilera Healthcare, AES Compassionate Care, Terrapin Investment Fund1, GTI Pennsylvania, AGRIMED Industries of PA, PurePenn, Holistic Farms, and Cresco Yeltrah.

 

To apply for a permit, the applicant must, among other things, provide a description of the business organization, submit to federal and state criminal background checks, showcase the ability to maintain effective security, complete a two-hour training course, provide a diversity plan and submit a non-refundable initial fee of $10,000, a refundable permit fee of $200,000 if permit is not granted, and documented proof of $2 million in capital, $500,000 of which must be on deposit in a financial organization.

 

What Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Need to Know:

 

Dispensaries with a valid permit may lawfully dispense medical cannabis to a patient or caregiver upon presentation of a valid identification card. Dispensaries may only dispense the quantity of medical marijuana permitted under a patient’s certification, in a form approved by Pennsylvania regulations, conforming to any specified conditions in a patient’s certification.

 

Dispensaries must have a physician or pharmacist onsite during all business hours, and if a dispensary has multiple locations, they may staff a physician’s assistant or certified registered nurse practitioner in lieu of a doctor or pharmacist. This medical professional must complete a two-hour training course, and may not issue a certification authorizing patients to receive medical cannabis on dispensary premises.

 

As of February 20th, 2017, the Pennsylvania Department of Health is accepting applications for permits for medical cannabis dispensaries. Initially, the Department will issue permits to no more than 50 dispensaries, and each dispensary may have up to three separate facilities.

 

To apply for a permit, the applicant must, among other things, provide a description of business organization, submit to federal and state criminal background checks, showcase the ability to maintain effective security, complete a two-hour training course, provide a diversity plan and submit a non-refundable initial fee of $5,000, a refundable permit fee of $30,000 if permit is not granted, and documented proof of $150,000 in capital.

When are we going to be able to purchase our medical marijuana? Above all I think we should be able to smoke buds because it is a lot cheaper for us. You have picked the most expensive route for the medically challenged. If we have to go this route then our insurance should pay for it, it is a medicine.

MMJ in Phila. What's the point?

7 people thought this review was helpful

Just coming back from visiting Sacramento, California and let me tell you, Philadelphia will be on the bottom of the list when comes to MMJ, because we won't get any flower plants or dry leaf, only concentrates, creams, oils and edibles really. Besides that, the medical condition criteria in order to obtain a MMJ license in PA are super extreme so I just ask what's the point of legalizing PA medical marijuana in the first place. I want to smoke my buds and furthermore, decide what I want to do with them whether that be turn them into concentrates, hash, or edibles...just let me decide. Not claim that it's unlawful to smoke plants but lawful to inhale/smoke vapors or eat bud filled foods.
