The first medical marijuana dispensary in Pennsylvania opened this week in the Lehigh Valley.

Keystone Canna Remedies held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its location in Bethlehem and gave Pennsylvania Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine a tour of the facility on Wednesday.

The dispensary will sell medical marijuana to Pennsylvania residents who register with the state’s new program once growers begin distribution sometime in the next four months, Gov. Tom Wolf’s office said in a statement earlier this month.

“We are one step closer to getting medical marijuana to patients who desperately need it,” Levine said at the ceremony.

The move comes two weeks after U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Jan. 4 that he would rescind the “Cole Memo,” a Barack Obama-era memo that advises U.S. attorneys to take a hands-off approach with legalized state-run medical marijuana programs.
