The first medical marijuana dispensary in Pennsylvania will be open soon in Bethlehem.
Community leaders and officials from Keystone Canna Remedies held a “grand opening” celebration at the facility on Wednesday, though technically it won’t open to patients until sometime “in the coming weeks.”
The company said in a press release that it will begin serving patients as soon as it can stock enough cannabis from approved growers and processors, which it said would likely be in a few weeks.
“Our on-site cannabis expert and pharmacist, combined with our patient care model of personal and comprehensive consultations, and, premium product selections from state-regulated sources will transform the lives of patients currently suffering and in some cases, experiencing significant hardship,” the company’s founder, Victor Guadagnino, said in a press release.
The facility seems to be welcome in the Lehigh Valley. Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Health spoke at the event, which was also attended by the local state House member and business and community leaders. The head of the local chamber of commerce even proclaimed, “Welcome to the 21st Century.”
The facility will hold patient workshops starting Monday.
