A local dispensary is holding outreach events to teach the community about medical marijuana.
The first Friday morning was at Cornerstone Coffeehouse in Camp Hill.
Rise Carlisle talked about what patients need to know when it comes to getting a medical marijuana card, finding physicians, and the products available.
“Marijuana has come out of the shadows and it’s being recognized as the helpful treatment it can be,” Rise Carlisle pharmacist Susan Byers said. “We find that having this program and educating people about how to get their card is really the first step.”
There will be another informational event Saturday at Rise Carlisle, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
