Today was the first day medical marijuana patients were able to be seen at Mission Dispensary on West Emmaus Avenue in Allentown. They are open Tuesday thru Saturday 11am-6pm.
They offer a wide array of marijuana products to help with pain management, and there are multiple ways to ingest these products. You can eat them, smoke them, take them in capsule form, or topical creams and lotions.
We spoke with patients today, and even though most didn't want to go on camera, they are relieved medical marijuana was passed as state law. Some people said this works better than prescription pills, and others say this is their last resort as other treatment methods don't work at all.
