Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program continues to expand. What started as just a handful of dispensaries in 2018, the Pittsburgh region, and the entire state, is continuously adding on more dispensaries and providing long-overdue relief to patients with a wide variety of cannabis products and medications. Pittsburgh City Paper reached out to Pittsburgh-area medical marijuana dispensaries to get more information directly from the sources to help patients determine which one might be the best fit for their needs. If you are one of the people who qualify for medical marijuana, and have acquired a certified Pennsylvania medical marijuana card, here’s a guide to help you navigate the growing list of dispensary locations now providing patients relief in Southwestern Pennsylvania.
