The Pennsylvania Health Department reported on today that more than 1,000 people registered on the first day of applications for the state’s new Medical Marijuana Program. The estimate includes patients and caregivers. Some applicants are having problems registering, particularly submitting applications that don’t contain information exactly as it appears on their driver’s licenses. The Pennsylvania Department of Health on Wednesday said patients in need will be able to get medical marijuana within six months. John Collins, director of Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Program, said residents interested in using marijuana for their medical conditions should talk to their doctors to make sure their doctors are registered to participate in the program.
