Medical Marijuana Info Session To Be Held In Municipal Building

PA Safe Access, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting for medical cannabis lobbying and education in Pennsylvania, will hold a medical marijuana information session Thursday, January 18 at the State College Municipal Building from 6-8 p.m.

The presentation will provide information on the specifics of the Pennsylvania medicinal program, including how to register with the Department of Health, how to find a doctor, how to acquire your medical marijuana card, and when and where the medicine will be available in the state.

“We have an office in Huntingdon and we found that we had a lot of people from State College who wanted an information session. They had a lot of legal questions they wanted us to cover,” a representative from PA Safe Access said.

The information session will also include guest speaker Frank Halling from the Compassionate Certification Centers. Halling helps recommend physicians to interested patients and hopes to put an office in State College, where he can add insight and a new perspective on the medical marijuana conversation.

The State College Dispensary is sponsoring the event, which is free to attend for all those interested. PA Safe Access hopes to hold two information sessions per year for patient outreach and is planning to host the next session in the fall.
