Brewster Issues Statement on Approval of McKeesport Site for Medical Marijuana Grower Permit

Student Government Day
Sen. Brewster Remarks on the Medical Marijuana Grower/Processor Permit in McKeesport

State Sen. Jim Brewster (D-Allegheny/Westmoreland) issued the following statement after the Pennsylvania Department of Health today awarded a medical marijuana grower and processor permit in the City of McKeesport to PurePenn LLC.  The site is located on five-acres of property on Industry Road in the city.

Brewster’s comments follow:

“The approval of the permit for a medical marijuana grower in McKeesport is excellent news.  Medical marijuana will help those who suffer from debilitating pain and serious medical conditions.  Plus, the new permit will bring jobs and economic development to the region.

“The new industry in the city will attract other businesses who will want to locate near the facility and create spin-off businesses that will generate additional work for local residents.  The entire economy of the region will be improved.  This is another large step in the rebuilding of the city and region.  It is certainly good news for the city and the area as a whole.”
