“Pennsylvanians have been waiting years for this moment,” Governor Wolf said in a statement. “Medical marijuana is legal, safe and now available to Pennsylvanians suffering from 17 serious medical conditions. In less than two years, we have developed a regulatory infrastructure, approved physicians as practitioners, certified patients to participate and launched a new industry to help thousands find relief from their debilitating symptoms.”

The Medical Marijuana Program was signed into law by Governor Wolf on April 17, 2016.

Since then, more than 17,000 patients have been registered for the program, and nearly 4,000 have been approved for treatment.

10 dispensaries and 10 growers and processors have been approved to operate to date. The governor's office expects the program to be fully implemented later this year.
