Fairview is about to go green

Local News

Two medical marijuana dispensaries are approved for Northwest Pennsylvania.  The Department of Health is granting a permit for one dispensary in Erie County and one in Mckean County.

The Erie County permit was awarded to GTI Pennsylvania LLC, for a location on West Ridge Road in Fairview.  today, the state approved a total of 52 dispensaries across the state.

John Collins, Director of the PA Office of Medical Marijuana, says, “We’re very pleased with the competitive nature of this process. Based on that competitive process, it has yielded very, very high-quality applications, which will end up benefiting these patients.”

Each company will be able to open up to three locations, but they’ll have to wait six months before they can open to the public.  Approved patients, under physician care, are expected to have access to medical marijuana in early 2018.
