Patients across Pennsylvania suffering from 17 qualified conditions, including cancer, Crohn’s disease, and severe chronic or intractable pain will eventually have the freedom to walk into any of the state’s 50 licensed dispensaries and purchase full strength cannabis products. Unfortunately, it could take up to two years before the program is fully functional.
However, for parents of children suffering from seizure disorders, there is provision written into the language of the law that allows them to possess and administer cannabis oil before the product is legally available for sale.
…patients with a recommendation from a doctor will not be allowed to smoke marijuana
…only various cannabis products will be made available, including pill, oil, tinctures, and liquid forms that can be used in vaporizers
…the law also forbids patients from engaging in home cultivation.
Edible forms of marijuana, such as pot brownies and cannabis infused gummy bears, will not be sold in dispensaries, but the law allows patients to produce these items at home.
…patients caught in possession of cannabis buds could still face criminal penalties.
…possession of less than 30 grams of weed is a misdemeanor punishable with 30 days in jail and a maximum fine of $500.
Patients busted for cultivating any number of plants at home could face felony charges
