Pennsylvania legalized medical marijuana in Pennsylvania on April 6, 2016, and on February 15, 2018, medical marijuana became available for patients at dispensaries across the commonwealth — providing long-overdue medical relief to patients with serious medical conditions.
Physicians can participate in the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Program by completing the Practitioner Registry. So far, over 100 physicians (18 of which are located in Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties) have been approved to recommend medical marijuana in the state of Pennsylvania.
