PITTSBURGH — The Healing Research Center medical-cannabis company is expanding to Robinson Township, and will provide the Pittsburgh area with its first drive-through medical cannabis dispensary. The dispensary located in western Allegheny County is expected to open on Fri., July 30.
The new drive-through dispensary, owned by Verano Holdings, will be located at 6300 Robinson Centre Drive near the Mall at Robinson, and will include four different drive-through stalls. Chris Kohan, co-founder of The Healing Center, said he is excited to bring the first drive-through medical marijuana dispensary to Western Pennsylvania.
The Healing Research Center in Robinson Township is the second dispensary under that name in the state, with the first located in Chester County. The Healing Center, a partner of the Healing Research Center, announced earlier this year that it purchased 50 percent equity interest in Chester County-based Agronomed Biologics which allowed for the expansion of four more Pennsylvania locations, and a grow facility.
Eventually, the six new dispensaries will assist in research on medical marijuana with Drexel University’s Medical Cannabis Research Center as part of Pennsylvania’s Chapter 20 Clinical Research Program, according to a press release.
