A second medical marijuana dispensary is poised to open in Plymouth Meeting. According to a document from the state titled “Phase 3 Clinical Registrant Permittee Facility Locations,” CannTech is opening a dispensary at 505 West Germantown Pike. The property was previously home to Qdoba Mexican Grill and offices. CannTech has not announced an opening date.
“Phase 3” refers to a segment of Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana law that requires those seeking licenses to grow and dispense to partner with a research facility and outline a research program. CannTech is partnering with Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine – Erie.
To operate a dispensary in Plymouth Township does not require any zoning relief in an area zoned for retail uses (which this falls within).
Ilera Healthcare opened a dispensary at 420 Plymouth Road in 2018. In 2019, Ilera was sold and the dispensary is now known as The Apothecarium Dispensary.
