These per­mit hold­ers now have six months to get up and op­er­a­tional be­fore they can be­gin to dis­trib­ute med­i­cal mar­i­juana prod­ucts.

All to­tal, the Pennsylvania Of­fice of Med­i­cal Mar­i­juana re­ceived 457 ap­pli­ca­tions: 177 for grow­ers and pro­ces­sors; and 280 for dis­pen­saries.

There will be a to­tal of 52 dis­pen­saries through­out Pennsylvania as a result of the de­ci­sions an­nounced Thurs­day.

In the south­east re­gion, ev­ery county and Philadel­phia will have at least one dis­pen­sary ex­cept for Schuylkill County, the west­ern-most county in the re­gion.

“This has been a highly com­pet­i­tive process and the de­part­ment re­ceived hun­dreds of qual­ity ap­pli­ca­tions,” John Collins, Di­rec­tor of the Of­fice of Med­i­cal Mar­i­juana said in a pre­pared state­ment.

“Once this pro­gram is fully op­er­a­tional, pa­tients with se­ri­ous med­i­cal con­di­tions will have lo­ca­tions through­out the com­mon­wealth where they can pur­chase med­i­ca­tion to help in their treat­ment,” he said, adding, “we re­main on track to pro­vide med­i­ca­tion to pa­tients in 2018.”

Med­i­cal mar­i­juana was le­gal­ized last year in Pennsylvania, mak­ing it one of 44 states and Washington, D.C., that have passed some kind of mar­i­juana le­gal­iza­tion law.

Mar­i­juana re­mains il­le­gal un­der fed­eral law and At­tor­ney Gen­eral Jeff Ses­sions re­cent an­nounce­ment to vig­or­ously pros­e­cute those laws has cast some doubt on how these state laws will fare.

Nev­er­the­less, Pennsylvania is mov­ing for­ward and ex­pects pa­tients and care­givers to be able to reg­is­ter in Septem­ber.
