“The process itself of creating regulations and dispensing licenses is probably going to take; we’re estimating a best case 12 to 13 months and probably 18 months before licenses are issued.”

Under the law, anyone seeking a prescription for medical marijuana must be suffering from a “serious medical condition” defined as cancer, HIV or AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, damage to the nervous tissue of the spinal cord with intractable spasticity, epilepsy, inflammatory bowel disease, neuropathies, Huntington’s Disease, Crohn’s Disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, intractable seizures, glaucoma, sickle cell anemia; severe, chronic or intractable pain; or autism. “There’s a very detailed regulatory process that’s been created,” Clearfield said. “Medical marijuana that’s used in Pennsylvania, has to be from Pennsylvania. It has to be grown here. It has to be processed here and it will be tracked from cradle to grave, from seed to use.”
