In April, legislators passed and Gov. Wolf signed a bill legalizing medical marijuana in Pennsylvania. More than 100,000 people statewide (some say it’s closer to 200,000) are expected to eligible to obtain medical marijuana. But don’t expect it to happen overnight — though the bill goes into effect 30 days after Gov. Tom Wolf signs it, it’ll be a year and a half before the statewide medical marijuana program is up and running.
And it wouldn’t even have to be approved by lawmakers.
