After nearly a year of opening its medical marijuana patient registry, the state of Pennsylvania has seen over 80,000 people register with the program.
Nate Wardle, the press secretary for the Department of Health in Harrisburg, more than 80,000 patients have registered for the program since the registry launched last October.
Out of the 80,000 patients, the state has approved nearly 51,000 to receive medical marijuana through dispensaries.
Pennsylvania has approved conditions such as cancer, glaucoma, HIV, PTSD, severe chronic pain, autism, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis.
Roughly 1,300 doctors across Pennsylvania have registered for the program and 830 of those registrations having been approved.
