A medical marijuana dispensary in a county that borders Lancaster has gotten the green light from state regulators.
Keystone Dispensaries in Chester County is one of six dispensaries statewide that the Pennsylvania Department of Health has said can start selling once the medical marijuana products are available.
A post on the company’s Facebook page says it expects product in the middle of February and plans a grand opening on Feb. 17. The store’s address is 420 W. Lancaster Ave., Devon.
The other five dispensaries approved so far are in Allegheny, Butler, Luzerne, Montgomery and Northampton Counties.
Cure Pennsylvania, the only dispensary to win a permit in Lancaster County, is among those that have not yet been authorized to start operations. As LNP reported last month, its leaders said they expect a mid-March opening for the dispensary at 1864 Fruitville Pike in Manheim Township, at a small store in part of the former Kmart plaza.
The Pennsylvania law passed in 2016 and under development since then will let those with specific medical conditions who are certified by a participating doctor get certain forms of medical marijuana from licensed dispensaries.
