Pennsylvania’s medical cannabis board has recommended allowing the sale of flower for vaping.
All that stands in the way of MMJ flower sales is a go-ahead from the state’s secretary of health, according to Triblive.com.
Flower is one of the most affordable and commonly purchased forms of cannabis.
Here’s what you need to know:
- The board voted 11-0 to allow “dry leaf or plant form for administration by vaporization.” One member abstained.
- Pennsylania’s MMJ businesses currently can sell only oil, pills, tinctures or concentrates for vaping as well as ointments.
- As of April 6, more than 25,000 MMJ patients were signed up to purchase medical cannabis, and 914 doctors were registered to recommend medical cannabis.
- The advisory board is also expected to vote on whether to add terminal illness and palliative care to the list of medical conditions that can be treated with MMJ.
