Sen. Brewster Welcomes New Medical Marijuana Dispensary to Region

Medical Marijuana DispensaryState Sen. Jim Brewster today said he is pleased that the Cresco Yeltrah’s CY+ medical marijuana dispensary is opening shop today in New Kensington.

“The state’s medical marijuana law has helped patients who suffer from numerous painful and debilitating medical conditions,” Brewster said. “It has also provided economic opportunity and jobs throughout Pennsylvania’s agricultural and business sectors.”

Brewster said the new dispensary will provide greater convenience for area patients with both its location and new purchasing system that enables recurring patients to avoid lines in the dispensary by ordering their medication online.

In June of 2017, Brewster welcomed a medical marijuana grower and processor (PurePenn LLC) to a five-acre site on Industry Road in McKeesport. The business was one of the first in Pennsylvania to receive an operational permit.

“PurePenn has been a good local business and will help spur additional economic interest and investment throughout the city,” Brewster said. “I am pleased with how the medical marijuana law has worked so far.”

Last week, Brewster called for a statewide ballot referendum on recreational marijuana. He said a referendum would help gauge public support for his proposal that would use the estimated $580 million in revenue proceeds to establish statewide substance abuse treatment facilities and address drug overdose and addiction.
