Further, in Pennsylvania, the Department of Health approved a partnership between PA Optics for Wellness, a marijuana producer in Harrisburg, and Penn State College of Medicine. According to Kent Vrana, the Penn State College of Medicine’s Pharmacology department chair, the research will focus on medical marijuana patients who have chronic pain or cancer. He added, “We know there are reasons to believe marijuana may have beneficial effects. The trouble is, there hasn’t been high-quality clinical outcomes researchers to prove that.” Despite the state's medical marijuana program, marijuana is illegal under federal law.
