In April of 2016, Pennsylvania legalized medical marijuana for Pennsylvania residents affected by 23 serious medical conditions. Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center, in partnership with Keystone Canna Remedies, is offering medical marijuana enrollment assistance virtually on the 2nd Tuesdays of the month from 4-6pm ET to help eligible Pennsylvania residents apply for the state Medical Marijuana ID card.
The medical marijuana enrollment events are only to help people with the application for the state Medical Marijuana ID card. To be eligible, you must be a Pennsylvania resident and be diagnosed with a serious medical condition. In order to enroll on the state's website, attendees must bring their driver's license or state-issued ID, must be 18 or older, and are required to have an active phone number and email address.
Pennsylvania law defines "serious medical conditions" as any one of the following:
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
- Anxiety disorders.
- Cancer, including remission therapy.
- Crohn’s disease.
- Damage to the nervous tissue of the central nervous system (brain-spinal cord) with objective neurological indication of intractable spasticity, and other associated neuropathies.
- Dyskinetic and spastic movement disorders.
- HIV / AIDS.
- Huntington’s disease.
- Inflammatory bowel disease.
- Intractable seizures.
- Multiple sclerosis.
- Neurodegenerative diseases.
- Opioid use disorder for which conventional therapeutic interventions are contraindicated or ineffective, or for which adjunctive therapy is indicated in combination with primary therapeutic interventions.
- Parkinson’s disease.
- Post-traumatic stress disorder.
- Severe chronic or intractable pain of neuropathic origin or severe chronic or intractable pain.
- Sickle cell anemia.
- Terminal illness.

Some of these serious medical conditions are experienced at higher rates in the LGBT community.
