Pennsylvania Department of Health Seeks Public Input on Medical Marijuana Program's Temporary Regulation for Dispensaries/Laboratories
Date:6/20/2016

HARRISBURG, Pa., June 20, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Department of Health Secretary Dr. Karen Murphy today announced the department has begun working on the temporary regulation for dispensaries/laboratories and is seeking input from the public, stakeholders, and partners.

A short survey regarding the dispensaries/laboratories temporary regulation is available today through July 5 on the department's website to allow for input from the public, stakeholders, and partners.

"The Department of Health is committed to being transparent throughout the development and implementation of the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Program," said Secretary Murphy. "Seeking input from the public, our stakeholders and partners will help us achieve our vision of having a high quality, efficient, and compliant medical marijuana program for Pennsylvania residents with serious medical conditions as defined by Act 16."

The temporary regulations will explain the medical marijuana program's operation, including how applications will be submitted, and will be in place for two years from the date they are published. The department will continue to seek input via surveys on its website throughout the temporary regulations process. The department intends to issue all temporary regulations by the end of this calendar year.

The medical marijuana program was signed into law by Governor Tom Wolf on April 17, 2016 and became effective one month later on May 17. The implementation of the program is expected to take between 18 and 24 months and, when completed, will offer medical marijuana to patients who are residents of Pennsylvania and under a physician's care for the treatment of a serious medical condition as defined by Act 16.

Questions about the medical marijuana program can be emailed to RA-DHMedMarijuana@pa.gov. Information is also available on the Department of Health website at www.health.pa.gov.
