On June 3, 2017, the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH)
regulations for physicians and other practitioners wishing to participate
in the commonwealth’s medical marijuana program. Previous to this, in April
2017, DOH sent out draft regulations for comment. Based upon comments it
received, including from the Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED), DOH
published its revised temporary regulations.
To help clarify a physician’s responsibilities under these
regulations, PAMED has prepared a Quick Consult publication with answers to frequently asked
questions. PAMED will keep our members informed of any new developments,
including the issuance of further temporary regulations.
