Pennsylvania legalized medical marijuana use in 2016.
There are a number of qualifying conditions that allow a person to obtain medical marijuana products from a dispensary.
Some of these qualifying conditions include multiple sclerosis, post-traumatic stress disorder, epilepsy, chronic pain, and anxiety. There is also a general blanket order that a doctor can prescribe marijuana if he feels that a person’s condition falls under one of these categories. Marijuana was approved and the number of dispensaries started to multiply month after month. There are still some rural areas throughout Pennsylvania where no dispensaries exist, but Philadelphia has some great places to buy medical marijuana. There are definitely more marijuana dispensaries in the city of Philadelphia than anywhere else in the state. There are more dispensaries in Philadelphia than the state capital of Harrisburg, located more than 2 hours away. Many of the Philadelphia medical marijuana clinics offer first-time patient specials. You can save a great deal of money by taking advantage of these first time patient specials and offers. When my boyfriend and I were in the city a couple of weeks ago, we went to a place that was offering 30% off of our first order. I honestly wish that I had a pocket full of money at the time. I only had $150 to spend on marijuana supplies and I needed the rest of the money in the bank for repairs on the car. I really thought about taking the money out of the bank to use for medical marijuana, but the air conditioner repair was very important too.
