Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana License

Medical Marijuana in Pennsylvania

In 2016, the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, signed Senate Bill 3 into law giving physicians the approval to prescribe medical marijuana to patients who meet any of the 23 qualifying conditions. On February 15, 2018, medical marijuana dispensaries in Pennsylvania opened their doors to sell prescribed marijuana to patients.

There are now over 1,000 registered physicians in Pennsylvania who can recommend medical marijuana as a treatment to their patients. In its first year, Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program reached $132 million in sales from approximately 600,000 transactions in dispensaries.

In December 2018, Governor Wolf had a Twitter chat asking Pennsylvanians for their thoughts on cannabis legalization. Within a month, he put a team together to travel the state, asking the public for their input.

In September 2019, the Governor divulged the results of the statewide tour. It turned out that 68% of the residents questioned were in favor of legalizing marijuana. Almost every attendee was in favor of decriminalization. The findings of the tour resulted in the Governor asking the state legislature for actions he wished the state to take:

  • Debate and consideration of legislation to legalize cannabis for recreational use
  • The passage of legislation to decriminalize possession of small amounts of cannabis
  • Passage of legislation to expunge prior cannabis convictions

It seems very likely that legalized recreational marijuana will be coming to the state of Pennsylvania within the next few years. Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, as expected, has made legalizing recreational cannabis one of his administration’s top legislative priorities this year. Wolf highlighted recreational marijuana in his budget proposal earlier this year and mentioned the urgency given adult-use legalization in neighboring New Jersey and the legalization push in New York.
