Pennsylvania’s new medical marijuana industry is getting easier to picture. On June 20, 2017 the state awarded grower/processor permits to 12 applicants. They tend to be deep-pocketed entities, with many of them based out of state and already involved in medical marijuana in other states. They are expected to be up and running within six months.

The state received 457 applications in total, including 177 for grower/processors and 280 for dispensaries. Within a week or so of June 20 that state is expected to announce the permits for the 27 dispensaries that will sell medical marijuana.
