Six of them are in northeastern Pennsylvania: Edwardsville, Blakeslee, Williamsport, and State College.

In northwest, PA clinics will be in Lawrence and Jefferson counties.

Clinton and Center counties will be home to dispensaries in the north central part of the state.

While many believe the drug will help, some argue that marijuana can be used as a gateway to other forms of drug use.

Most of the sites will be open for business in the next six months.
