Medical Marijuana Law to Recieve Overhaul
Harrisburg – The Pennsylvania House of Representatives will soon be debating an extension to Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana laws. Senate Bill 773 increases the number of permits issued for growers, dispensaries, and studies and was recently approved by the House Health Committee in a 20-5 vote. The bill was readily passed through the PA Senate, but Republican House Health Committee Chair Kathy Rapp thinks the bill can, and should, meet more scrutiny in the lower chamber.
