US (PA): Bill would allow farmers to grow medical cannabis

A new bill in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives would allow Pennsylvania farmers to grow medical cannabis.

In a memo to House members, Reps. Melissa Shusterman (D-Chester) and Ismail Smith-Wade-El (D-Lancaster) said they plan to introduce the bill to allow for accessible and equitable entry into the medical cannabis industry.

The bill would allow for a new permit that farmers and other small agricultural ventures can apply for to grow and sell medical cannabis to existing growers/processors on a limited basis.

The lawmakers say passing this legislation would open the door to new growers, including those in marginalized communities.
