Medical marijuana is illegal in Pennsylvania. The Compassionate Use of Medical Marijuana Act was proposed late in 2009, and that bill is in the early stages of the legislative process. Until medical marijuana is legalized in Pennsylvania, medical users potentially face the same penalties as recreational users.
What is the Medical Marijuana Registry? Is there a Pennsylvania Marijuana Registry?
States that have legalized medical marijuana often build a medical marijuana registry to help law enforcement keep track of patients with a valid doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana use. However, there is no Pennsylvania marijuana registry because medical marijuana is not legal in the state. Furthermore, individuals on registry lists in other states (such as California) are not recognized as valid users in Pennsylvania.
