Langerholc Issues Statement on the Grower/Processor Permits Awarded to Two Local Companies

Senator Wayne Langerholc, Jr. issued the following statement on the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s issuance of grower/processor permits to Green Leaf Medicals LLC in Saxton, and Hanging Gardens LLC in Johnstown, which are both located in the 35th Senatorial District. 

The companies were among 13 entities approved for Phase II of the Medical Marijuana Program, which is expanding access to this medication to every part of the state.

“I’m pleased that two grower/processors in this area have received approval under the state’s new medical marijuana program. This will provide greater access to medication for residents, help our local economy by bringing jobs to the area and potentially reduce the use of opioids for pain management. This is critical as we address the growing opioid crisis here in Pennsylvania.”
