Many patients in Pennsylvania will soon be able to purchase marijuana in dry leaf form. Currently state law allows medical pot for vaporizing, oils, tinctures, and pill form. Consumers also will find that marijuana in its natural form is slightly cheaper. It’s about four to five times more expensive per gram to purchase processed marijuana from dispensaries than regular. The important thing is that you have what works for you! PA Health Secretary Dr. Rachael Lavine has also accepted the Board of Health’s recommendation to allow “qualifying conditions” to jump from 17 to 21, which will include approved treatment for opioid abuse. Currently 30,000 PA residents are registered in the medical marijuana program and over 12,000 have been approved by physicians. These changes are also going to help providers keep up with the growing demand and prevent future shortages. Slowly but certainly the state’s program will become more established and reliable!
