Pennsylvania has given its first green light to a medical marijuana company to start growing cannabis under the state’s new MJ program
The Morning Call newspaper reported the state health department approved Cresco Yeltrah – based in Jefferson County in western Pennsylvania – as fully operational, making it the first of 12 cultivation/processing licensees to win approval.
The remaining 11 licensees should be approved in the “coming weeks,” according to the Morning Call.
Cresco Yeltrah is an affiliate of Illinois-based Cresco Labs. The company also has a dispensary license and plans to open storefronts in Pittsburgh and two other cities.
