Harrisburg, PA, March 21, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Former Lt. Governor Mark Singel, the President of the Winter Group, praised Governor Wolf and the Pennsylvania Legislature for their actions and willingness to bring medical marijuana to Pennsylvania. “We know that medical marijuana can provide relief for patients who have suffered too long. We can provide compassionate care for them if public officials and private businesses strive for the highest standards in handling these new responsibilities,” said Singel in an official statement announcing a formal partnership between the Winter Group and MedMen, a full service medical marijuana management and consulting company.
“Leaders of both parties recognized the life-changing benefits of marijuana for thousands of patients in Pennsylvania,” said Kellen O’Keefe, National Director of Business Development for MedMen. “With the passage of this legislation an industry will emerge and we are at the forefront of ensuring that industry can best serve the patients that have waited so long for access,” said O’Keefe while announcing plans to enter the state.
