About Pennsylvania's Medical Marijuana Act

Sacks Weston Diamond LLC provides high-quality representation to companies who want to get involved in the medical marijuana industry. In Pennsylvania, the Medical Marijuana Act provides for the use of cannabis in treatment of patients suffering from various debilitating medical conditions. Under the act, marijuana dispensaries and grower/producers are able to distribute marijuana-derived products legally without criminal consequences.

Under the Act, the number of permitted growers/producers and dispensaries is limited. You will need the best lawyers to help you to try to get an application for any aspect of the medical marijuana industry approved. Our firm not only understands the application process but has been very involved in the political process to get the act passed.
