Governor Wolf will host a press conference to celebrate the one-year anniversary of signing medical marijuana legislation in Pennsylvania. The governor will also honor the families and advocates who helped support and pass the legislation.

Since the signing last year, the Department of Health has implemented steps towards having the medical marijuana program fully implemented in 2018.

In the past year, the Department of Health has completed temporary regulations for growers/processors, dispensaries and laboratories, released Phase 1 permit applications for growers/processors and dispensaries, completed the Safe Harbor temporary guidelines and Safe Harbor Letter application process, as well as approved 226 applications, and released a Request for Quotations for Electronic Tracking IT solutions for the tracking of medical marijuana.
