Less than two weeks after Pennsylvania introduced a new medical marijuana program, two of the state’s dispensaries ran out of inventory. In fact, the only supplies left as of Thursday morning were vape pens.
Chris Visco, who co-owns TerraVida Holistic Center in Sellersville, told the Philadelphia Inquirer: “I had projected 60 people initially for the entire month. We had over 600 patients in our first eight days.” He says the shop will remain open with modified hours for patient consultations and pre-orders.
Meanwhile, Keystone Shops, a dispensary about 40 minutes south of Sellersville in Devon, has posted a notice on its website saying it’s closed until further notice, stating:
The first sale in Southeastern PA took place at Keystone Shops on Friday, February 16 at the Keystone Shops Devon location. We’re proud to have provided this service to this initial patient and roughly 200 more patients since then.
After receiving multiple deliveries from the state’s first Grower-Processor, Cresco-Yeltrah, Keystone Shops has sold out much of its existing inventory.
Keystone’s COO Skip Shuda tells the Philadelphia Inquirer that he’s looking at resuming sales the third week in March, adding, “It’s frustrating for us, and it’s frustrating for a lot of patients who were looking for medicine.”
