Voters Support The Use Of Medical Marijuana.

We’ve seen it before in New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, and Maryland. It isn’t pretty. The Pennsylvania Department of Health is taking applications for a handful of first-round permits being allowed for growing marijuana and dispensing a limited range of cannabis products.

We see investors and local officials walking hand-in-hand as businesses angle for permits from the Waynesboro Board of Education to a group of landowners in Wyoming County.
