Do you have questions about Medical Marijuana? Do you need help with enrollment or obtaining a Medical Marijuana card? Medical Marijuana became available in Pennsylvania a year ago on February 15, 2018, providing relief for patients with serious medical conditions.
The current list of 21 approved diseases or conditions for medical marijuana in Pennsylvania includes: chronic pain, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, autism, cancer, Crohn’s disease, damage to nervous tissue of the central nervous system, spastic movement disorders, epilepsy, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, Huntington’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, intractable seizures, multiple sclerosis, neurodegenerative diseases, neuropathies, opioid-use disorder, Parkinson’s disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, sickle cell anemia, and terminal illness.
Nearly a year later, patients still have questions and many are not clear on how to get enrolled in the program. “Understanding Medical Marijuana” is an all-day event on Saturday, March 2 at the Harrisburg Mall on Paxton Street in Harrisburg. It’s going on from 10 a.m. til 9 p.m. on the second floor of the Harrisburg Mall.
“Our goal is to educate the public on the benefits of Medical Marijuana. We are here to bring awareness to the process the state has outlined to receive a Medical Marijuana card and to help those who are eligible begin the application process. There is much misinformation out there as to how the program works in PA and this day will give us the ability to answer any questions the public may have”, said Jackie Parker of Green Thumb Industries.
