The Do's and Don'ts of Leasing Medical Marijuana Dispensaries in Pennsylvania
Nearly five years ago, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed into law Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Act (Act 16). Since that time, the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH), the agency responsible for issuing licenses under the Act, has issued 50 medical marijuana dispensary licenses, allowing for 150 dispensaries. This has created a whole new class of commercial real estate in Pennsylvania. Medical marijuana dispensaries in Pennsylvania are doing a brisk business. However, this business is not without its risks and challenges.
