Medical marijuana and industrial hemp advocates have gathered at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Reading today.
The event, which will feature an appearance by musician and medical marijuana advocate Melissa Etheridge, is being billed as a celebration of the recent passage of Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana bill and also the passage this week of a bill that would legalize industrial hemp across the state. That bill awaits the signature of Gov. Tom Wolf.
But the big news at the celebration will be the announcement of the launch of two businesses in the industry – businesses based in Berks County and the Lehigh Valley.
Lehigh Valley Business is attending the announcement and will have more on it this afternoon.
Lehigh Valley Business’ sister publication, the Central Penn Business Journal, has details on some of what’s expected at today’s announcement. HERE
