The Pennsylvania Department of Health is in the process of implementing the state’s Medical Marijuana Program, signed into law on April 17, 2016. The Medical Marijuana Program provides access to medical marijuana for patients with a serious medical condition through a safe and effective method of delivery that balances patient need for access to the latest treatments with patient care and safety (health.pa.gov).
Join us at Generations for an informative presentation with Chris Visco, President and COO of TerraVida Holistic Centers (Sellersville/Abington/Malvern). Ms. Visco will share information relating to the legal use of medical marijuana in PA, such as the process to obtain a medical marijuana patient ID, approved forms and methods of consumption, and qualifying conditions for the use of medical marijuana. She will also share information about how and why the substance benefits patients with qualifying conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease, glaucoma, IBS, and Cancer. Ms. Visco will explain the differences between medical and recreational marijuana.
The information presented during this educational presentation is for your general use, so be sure to talk to your physician before making medical decisions or if you have questions about your health.
