Two Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Coming to Shamokin

The closest medical marijuana dispensaries to our area are in Willamsport, Wilkes-Barre, and Harrisburg. But that will soon change as two dispensaries have been approved by state officials for Shamokin. The sites in Shamokin are two of 23 permits issued Tuesday in Phase II of the state’s medical marijuana program. The sites have 6 months to get up and running. Once all Phase II dispensaries are operational, there will be a total of 79 dispensaries located throughout the Commonwealth.
