About Medical Cannabis in Pennsylvania

A comprehensive medical marijuana program has been offered to patients registered with the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Human Services since it was passed into law by Governor Tom Wolf in 2016. Patients with serious medical conditions can obtain medical cannabis through an effective and safe method of delivery that aims to balance the desire for access to the latest medical treatments with the responsibility for patient care and safety. As part of Gov. Wolf's plan for further reforming the state's marijuana laws, residents are allowed to dismiss their possession charges and for possession to be decriminalized completely. However, there needs to be detail on when this is possible. As of 2018, cannabis flower has been made available for vaporization, but its use is limited to those 18 years old. You cannot purchase edibles such as gummies, chocolates, and other snacks such as granola bars and crackers. While growing cannabis in a private residence is still illegal in Pennsylvania, a bill that would legalize the cultivation and sale of medical marijuana at home has just been introduced in the Pennsylvania Senate, known as SB1024. In compliance with this bill, patients over 21 can grow up to six cannabis plants inside their homes in an enclosed, locked area. Cannabis seeds can be purchased from dispensaries that are licensed to sell cannabis. While there have been several initiatives to legalize recreational marijuana in the state, it is still illegal. A bill to legalize recreational use is currently being discussed in the state senate in February 2022. Several state representatives support the measure, but becoming law may take a while.

It is necessary to obtain a license from a licensed physician before obtaining a registration card in Pennsylvania, a separate fee from the approval/recommendation fee.

Becoming a Caregiver in Pennsylvania

In Pennsylvania, caregivers must prove that they are residents of the state and possess a valid driver's license or state identification card. Furthermore, caregivers are not permitted to assist patients with criminal records. Caregivers in Pennsylvania cannot be approved if they have committed criminal offenses related to drug trafficking, drug possession, or drug use within five years of their application. Up to five registered patients with the Pennsylvania Department of Health may be cared for by an approved caregiver. The Pennsylvania Department of Health allows patients to designate up to two (2) caregivers to acquire or use medical cannabis. The only caregivers allowed to care for patients are those over the age of 21. PDH-approved caregivers can buy medical marijuana at a licensed clinic, possess it, transport and administer it to patients once a caregiver has purchased it with PDH approval. PA caregivers can apply in the following manner: Join the Patient and Caregiver Registry to participate in the program. To prove Pennsylvania residency, please present a Pennsylvania driver's license or Pennsylvania identification card issued by Pennsylvania with your current address. Conduct a criminal background check. To obtain a medical marijuana identification card, you must complete registration by paying $50. Becoming a caregiver can take four to six weeks after having your fingerprints are taken, which is part of the background check.
