Introducing SusqueCanna Pharma

On April 17, 2016 Governor Tom Wolf signed into law the “Medical Marijuana Act,” overwhelmingly supported by both the Pennsylvania House (149 vs. 46) and Senate (40 vs. 7). The Act establishes a framework for taxing, cultivating, and dispensing medical marijuana in Pennsylvania, including rules for patient and caregiver certification and for medical marijuana organizations.
 

Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Act is one of the most comprehensive medical marijuana programs in the United States and patients of the Commonwealth with one of seventeen (17) serious medical conditions may be eligible to include medical marijuana in their treatment, with a physician recommendation.
 

SusqueCanna Pharma is a company committed to cultivating and dispensing high-quality medical marijuana in safe, compliant, and environmentally low-impact ways to residents in south central Pennsylvania. SusqueCanna Pharma is also committed to diversity.

Brian Vicente, Compliance Advocate
Brian Vicente, Esq., is a partner and founding member of Vicente Sederberg LLC. He served as the co-director of the Amendment 64 campaign and was one of the primary authors of this historic measure, which resulted in Colorado becoming the first state in the nation – and the first geographic area in the world – to make the possession, use, and regulated distribution of marijuana legal for adults.  Mr. Vicente also serves as executive director of Sensible Colorado, the state's leading non-profit working for medical marijuana patients and providers.  He was given the Gideon award for his free speech advocacy during the 2008 Democratic National Convention.  In 2010, Mr. Vicente was elected the first-ever chair of the National Cannabis Industry Association, the only trade association in the U.S. that works to advance the interests of marijuana-related businesses on the national level.  He was the chair of the Committee for Responsible Regulation, which coordinated the successful 2013 campaign to implement statewide excise and sales taxes on the sale of adult-use marijuana in Colorado and was awarded the Justice Gerald Le Dain Award for Achievement in the Field of Law that same year.  Mr. Vincente has conducted over 1000 interviews in local, state and national press regarding marijuana policy, and in 2014 The Guardian (UK) dubbed him "the industry's de facto spokesman." Vicente's expertise in marijuana policy is highly sought after, and has led to him serving as a formal advisor to local, state, and federal governments—most recently he assisted with Uruguay becoming the first country in the world to fully-regulate the adult marijuana market.  Brian serves on the board of directors for a number of state and national non-profit organizations including the SAFER Voter Education Fund and the Harm Reduction Action Center.  Vicente graduated from the University of Denver Law School on a full merit scholarship where he clerked for outspoken social critic, Senior Federal Judge John L.
