Pandemic-era regulations that let medical marijuana dispensaries serve patients at curbside and dispense three months' worth of the drug at a time were memorialized into law by the Pennsylvania Legislature Friday, and Gov. Tom Wolf's office said he would sign the bill.

Before the pandemic, dispensaries were limited to distributing a month's worth at a time.

The legislation also relaxes the rules under which contaminants in medical marijuana can be removed.

A proposal to allow patients to grow marijuana for their own use was defeated.
