Three locations in Bucks County granted licenses to sell medical marijuana”

The Pennsylvania Department of Health has announced the state's first medical marijuana dispensary permits.

Dubois Wellness Center also noted the proposed facility is located just 7 minutes from Bradford Regional Medical Center, and is the flawless location for a medical cannabis dispensary.

Sites also were authorized for one operation apiece in Washington and Westmoreland counties. The recipients have six months to begin dispensing medical marijuana processed from growers awarded permits last week.

The department has awarded 10 permits in Southeastern Pennsylvania, Region 1, to companies wanting to open primary locations in Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties.

He said officials with the Harvest dispensary approached him in March to inquire about the building.The Health Department issued 27 permits for dispensaries, and each of the permit holders can operate up to three locations in the region.There will be 52 dispensaries throughout the state.The state's Office of Medical Marijuana received 457 applications: 177 for growers and processors and 280 for dispensaries.To operate a dispensary, applicants had to provide a $5,000 application fee and a $30,000 deposit that was refundable to losing bidders.The Health Department is asking the winning applicants to get their facilities operating in six months.

Locally, that included facilities to be operated by AGRiMED Industries of PA LLC near Carmichaels and PurePenn LLC in the former U.S. Steel millsite in McKeesport.

"Once this program is fully operational, patients with serious medical conditions will have locations throughout the commonwealth where they can purchase medication to help in their treatment", Collins says. No other permit recipients now plan to open secondary locations in the Lehigh Valley.

A complete list of who received the permits can be seen HERE. He added that the company notified the health department upon signing the lease.

The company didn't list the Baglyos location as its primary dispensary address on its application because it didn't have the lease to the Baglyos location at the time they filed the application, Guadagnino said.

On June 20, the state announced 12 grower/processor permits across the state.
