YORK TOWNSHIP, YORK COUNTY, Pa. — A second chance to cash in on Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Program.
A corporation in York County reapplies for a state license to grow and dispense medical cannabis.
Investors with Five-Leaf Remedies in York County thought they lost their shot to grow, process, and sell medical marijuana.
They were denied by the state for a permit last year, losing thousands of dollars in application fees and outreach efforts.
Five-Leaf is now trying again, with a new partnership with a legal, out-of-state cannabis grower with more money and more experience.
People in York knew the South York Diner for its bacon and eggs. Now, it sits empty, and some wonder what’s next for the building.
One company says it would be ideal for a medical marijuana dispensary, close to York and Interstate 83.
The South York Diner in York Township stopped serving customers more than a year ago.
A group of York County investors are looking to give the building a new purpose.
“I used to eat pancakes here, but now it’s the site of our proposed five leaf dispensary, so hopefully, if our application is approved, people will come here and get medical marijuana,” said Christina Kauffman, a spokeswoman with Five-Leaf Remedies.
It’s Five-Leaf Remedies second shot at a state license to grow, process, and dispense medical marijuana according to Kauffman.
“The corporations who had been given permits were larger, and they had experience,” she explained.
Five-Leaf is made up of York County businessmen and women, a benefit corporation which Kauffman says will give back to York County.
Five-Leaf reapplying – this time with support from a cannabis grower out of Washington State, GrowOp Farms.
GrowOp Farms is a company with more money, more experience, and more credibility
