An Arizona company that opened a medical marijuana dispensary in a former Harrisburg firehouse last year has opened its seventh medical marijuana dispensary in Pennsylvania. This time the company has opened a location on the West Shore.
Harvest Health & Recreation Inc. opened Harvest of Camp Hill at 3401 Hartzdale Drive in Lower Allen Township near Camp Hill on Wednesday. The dispensary is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Approved patients who possess a valid medical marijuana identification card can shop at the dispensary.
Pennsylvania legalized medical marijuana in 2016, allowing it to be used to treat 17 medical conditions. Last year the list grew to include 23 conditions. Someone with one of the conditions must have it certified by a doctor who is state-approved. Then they can obtain a card enabling them to buy medical marijuana at a medical marijuana dispensary.
Harvest was founded in 2011 and is based in Tempe, Arizona. The company’s other locations in the state are located in the Cranberry Township, Harrisburg, Johnstown, Reading, and Scranton areas. The company is also planning to open dispensaries in the Whitehall and King of Prussia areas, according to its website.
Harvest opened Harvest of Harrisburg in November at 2500-2504 N. Sixth St. in Harrisburg in the former Camp Curtin Fire Station. For 30 years, the fire station was home to the Camp Curtin Bar-B-Que Station. The restaurant closed at the end of March.
The new dispensary in Lower Allen Township is one of numerous dispensaries that have opened or will open in the midstate (under the same name or a different name).
