For today's weed news we go to the great state of Pennsylvania.
Ever since Pennsylvania legalized medical cannabis back in 2016, Pennsylvania residents suffering from everything from PTSD to cancer, chronic pain, autism and AIDS have been eligible to apply for and qualify for the state's medical Cannabis program.
Now Pennsylvania's is proud to report that they have officially surpassed over $500,000,000 in cannabis sales in the last two years!
According to the State's Office of Medical Marijuana director John Collins, Pennsylvania currently has over 147,000 registered cannabis patients. To supply all of them with medicine, the state is now also home to 72 MMJ dispensaries.
Not a bad start for a young MMJ program if you ask me.
It is also estimated that around 65,000 medical cannabis patients frequent one or more of the 72 dispensaries each week with each patient spending somewhere around $120 per visit on average.
To break it down further, most, 60% of Pennsylvania's registered Cannabis patients are using it to treat some kind of chronic or severe pain. That number is in line with the majority of other states that currently allow their residents to use medical Cannabis.
To me it seems like Pennsylvania's coming along quite nicely. I remember just a few years ago talking to a mentor of mine who was based out of Pittsburgh about writing my cannabis Edibles cookbooks, and the way he described it, the Pennsylvania cannabis scene was still very much frowned upon in the public eye.
That being said, I would bet money that there has surely been a paradigm shift of sorts in the state since then. But anyway, it's great to see yet another state far far away from the Green West Coast embracing the amazing plant that is cannabis.
And for now that's what's up in the great state of Pennsylvania.
