HARRISBURG — The Wolf administration announced Tuesday that 13 entities received grower/processor permits for Phase II of the state’s Medical Marijuana Program.

“In Phase I of the program, we built a framework to give patients access to medical marijuana,” Dr. Levine said. “In this next phase, Phase II, we are fully implementing the program to expand access to this medication to every part of the state. This medication is vital to Pennsylvanians suffering from one of the 21 serious medical conditions allowed under the law and we need to ensure they have access to it close to their homes.”

The department has made applicant information, score cards and a table of the Phase II grower/processor permittees available at www.medicalmarijuana.pa.gov.
