Pennsylvania just became the 24th U.S. state to legalize medical marijuana.

Governor Tom Wolf approved the measure Sunday, allowing the sale and consumption of cannabis for treating specific diseases or symptoms.

Wolf, a Democrat, said in a statement that the measure “will improve the quality of life for patients and their families throughout Pennsylvania” by giving them access to a new treatment option.

The state will roll out its medical marijuana program over the next 18 to 24 months.

Under the new law, up to 150 dispensaries can obtain an authorization to sell weed to patients with a doctor’s certification.

According to a fiscal impact report, Pennsylvania estimates application and registration fees will net $10 million within a year.

The state will collect a 5% tax on medical marijuana purchases.

Among the diseases included in the statute’s definition of “serious medicial condition”: Cancer, HIV/AIDS, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord damage, epilepsy, inflammatory bowl disease, glaucoma and PTSD.
