Pennsylvania Approves First Medical Cannabis Dispensary

Pennsylvania officials on Thursday announced the first all-clear for a medical marijuana dispensary in the state to begin providing cannabis once it becomes available from a licensed grower.

The Keystone Canna Remedies dispensary in Bethlehem received the state authorization, a major milestone in Pennsylvania’s new medical marijuana program.

“It means there’s going to be safe and effective access to a new medicine that can help (patients) in a wide variety of ways,” said Victor Guadagnino, the company’s co-founder and chief of business development. He said the company sees cannabis as a way patients can take a more active role in their own health care.
