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. To learn more about our work in this field, click here.

Patients, hospitals and other health treatment facilities, physicians, nurses, pain management specialists who want to receive or dispense marijuana-derived treatments for medical purposes will have to go through the Department of Health's procedures and registration application process. We can help you through that process.

We can also help any university or medical facility wanting to research the health effects of medical marijuana.

Our firm is the only law firm which belongs to the American Trade Association of Cannabis and Hemp (ATACH). ATACH was extremely active in the successful lobbying efforts for the passage of the act. Having the years of experience in helping to get this act passed, our firm sits uniquely experienced to represent and help the industry grow and prosper.
