There are great places to visit while in the influence of medical marijuana in Pittsburgh, these are:
Mt. Washington and the Inclines: No visit to Pittsburgh is complete without a trip from downtown Pittsburgh on one of the 1800’s restored slopes to the top of Mt. Washington–just across the river. There are plenty of excellent restaurants to choose from on top of this former “Coal Hill,” and USA Today has ranked the amazing downtown view (particularly lovely at night) as the second best lovely location in America. Snapping pictures of the skyline is one of the best locations.
Senator John Heinz Pittsburgh History Center: This former ice house was resurrected as a seven-story museum, with interactive exhibits bringing to life over 250 years of history in Western Pennsylvania. Discover how the region was formed by immigrants, uncover the Underground Railroad myths, or climb aboard a Pittsburgh trolley of the 1940s. The Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum has two floors.
The National Aviary: The National Aviary is just across the Allegheny River from the History Center, where more than 600 of the world’s most amazing birds are displayed in naturalistic exhibits and walk-through habitats. Marvel at colibris the size of a thumb or Andean Condors with gigantic 10-foot wingspans at the top bird zoo of the nation.
After a Veriheal doctor approves you for medical marijuana in Pennsylvania, you'll be able to access local dispensaries in Pittsburgh.
