Delco shut out in 1st round of medical marijuana licenses

Hope you weren't already banking on an economic bonanza from the arrival of medical marijuana in Pennsylvania.

Delaware County got shut out yesterday as the state doled out the first 12 licenses for medical marijuana growing and processing licenses.

There were two entities in the county who submitted applications, including one fronted by the McKee family, well-known builders, from Aston Township.

That does not mean Delco will be shut out entirely.

There will be another round of licenses handed out next year.

And in a couple of weeks, the state will be awarding licenses for the dispensaries that will actually sell the medical marijuana.
