On April 17 2016, Pennsylvania’s Governor, Tom Wolf, signed legalization for the state’s medical marijuana program. This law has given patients and physicians protection, giving them the foundation necessary to an organized and regulated system for those who wish to use marijuana for their medical treatment. Instructions were given to the state, and finally, by the second half of 2017, the patient program application opened. Licenses were distributed among 50 dispensaries that will gradually open across the state, with a large concentration of dispensaries in the Southeastern Pennsylvania.
