Philadelphia Opens Its First Medical Marijuana Dispensary

Restore Integrative Wellness is the first of three medical marijuana dispensaries scheduled to open its doors in Fishtown, Philadelphia.

The dispensary’s grand opening is Wednesday, May 2.

In April, the state of Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program expanded to include the green herb’s dry leaves or its flower form for vaporization.

The three dispensaries in the area will be able to sell medical marijuana in the legally approved pill, oil, topical, liquid, and vaporizable forms.

According to officials the program opened in February and is rapidly growing. Currently, the program has 30,400 registered patients.

So far, more than half of the 1,000 doctors that have registered with the state to be certified to prescribe medical marijuana have been approved.
