The Pennsylvania Department of Health recently released proposed permanent regulations to replace the temporary regulations that have been in place since April of 2017. The proposed permanent regulations would not substantially alter the medicinal cannabis market in Pennsylvania but there are several notable proposed changes in the new regulations. For example, the proposed regulations add certain conditions under the definition of a “severe medical condition” and prohibit practitioners from charging their patients excessive fees.
The proposed regulations are not in full effect yet but it is always wise to stay ahead of potential regulatory changes. For more details on the proposed permanent regulations check out the article linked below written by Fox attorneys Edward J. Cyran and Madison S. Clemens.
