New medical marijuana facility opens

Local News

Altoona’s first medical marijuana dispensary opened on Monday at 514 East Pleasant Valley Boulevard. It’s in a strip plaza in the city’s east end, which also houses a hairdresser and a veterinarian’s office.

When WTAJ stopped by around noon, we found that despite the fact that they just opened up, they already had a crowd lined up outside and inside. Some had to wait quite a while to get in, but most took the delay pretty well.

At the dispensary called Herbology, spokesman Peyton Hurst said the facility stocks every kind of medical marijuana that’s available in Pennsylvania.

He said there’s always a pharmacist on site who can help patients determine what type of medical cannabis would help their particular problem.
