The laws that regard the possession or selling of marijuana depend from state to state, even though it is classified as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act of 1940. In recent news, however, New Castle of Pennsylvania has been selected as one of the first 12 medical marijuana growers/processors in the State of Pennsylvania.
Medical Marijuana to be Grown in New Castle
Many bidders proposed plans for secure locations that would deal with the indoor growing of medical marijuana operations. And the selection of New Castle as a setting for growing this comes on the rationale that it is a financially distressed community.
Morgan And Genderson, entrepreneurs from the Massachusetts, Maryland, and Washington D.C. area, said that this would allow them to create as many as 100-150 job opportunities. They stated that the product they anticipate growing in the New Castle area would produce medical marijuana with the CDD part active (the part of cannabis that is used for epilepsy, some forms of cancer, glaucoma, and other medical conditions treatment). It would not have THC (the ingredient that enables people to get high).
The entire operation began in February, when the city council approved a resolution supporting Holistic Farms of Haverford, Pennsylvania, and their plan to locate their operation of medical marijuana growth in New Castle.
The reason that Morgan and Genderson chose New Castle is that the operation would be up and working in as much as 6 months. However, he has not said yet how much would the Holistic company invest in New Castle.
Medical marijuana underwent a series of legislature proposal and decriminalization in several states across the U.S.A. after major discussions took place within the U.S.A. However, it is still at the liberty of any local state to decriminalize medical marijuana. Once done so, it would need a form of standardization in order not to create any sort of illegal trafficking or using.
