Green Thumb Industries is one step closer to opening its Montour County growing facility as part of the state's medical marijuana program after the Pennsylvania Department of Health today announced GTI and Pennsylvania Medical Solutions, LLC, Lackawanna County, were approved to begin growing and processing medical marijuana at their facilities.

"Pennsylvania now has six grower/processors that are fully operational, bringing us one step closer to providing medical marijuana to patients," Gov. Tom Wolf said. "We expect more grower/processors to become operational in the coming days. The program is moving forward to deliver medication to patients with serious medical conditions in the next few months."

During a tour of the facility last week, CEO Pete Kadens said the plant, operated out of a refurbished warehouse at the Iron Commerce Center in Danville, is expected to begin operation in a few weeks.

The 75,000 sq.-ft. space, at East Market and Railroad streets, includes a cobweb of highly secure offices and workspace, has undergone more than $5 million worth of renovations and security upgrades, Kadens said on Thursday.

In order to become operational, the grower/processors underwent several inspections from the Department of Health. The facilities also are fully integrated with the seed-to-sale tracking system. The grower/processors will now be able to begin accepting seeds and clones to grow medical marijuana.

"More than 9,300 patients have registered to participate in the program, and are in the process of visiting an approved practitioner to get their patient certification," Acting Health Secretary and Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine said. "More than 200 physicians have been approved as practitioners, with nearly 300 more going through the process."
