A new medical marijuana dispensary will open next week in Steelton. Rise Steelton will open for business on Thursday at 801 S. Front St. in Steelton.
Rise Steelton will open its doors for a tour of the facility during an open house on Monday from noon to 3 p.m. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. This will be before medicine is stocked at the dispensary to allow the entire community, not just patient card holders, to visit the facility.
People with one of 17 approved medical conditions can buy medical medical marijuana after receiving approval from a doctor who has received special training from the state. They then can obtain a state-issued card that enables them to obtain medical marijuana at medical marijuana dispensary. Or a designated caregiver can pickup the medical marijuana.
Rise Steelton will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
Steelton Borough Council approved an ordinance back in December 2016 that permits medical marijuana businesses to operate in the borough.
Rise Steelton is owned by Green Thumb Industries, and KW Ventures Holdings
