Philly’s suburbs are getting another medical marijuana dispensary – and this one’s coming to King of Prussia.

Gov. Tom Wolf has approved a second location for Keystone Shops, which opened in Devon last month. The KOP branch is expected to begin business at 367 South Henderson Road in early April.

The state’s first six dispensaries, including Keystone Shops in Devon, opened to high demand in late February. Many businesses ran out of products during opening week. (Only one state-approved medical marijuana grower has sent its product to dispensaries – so supply is low, and prices are high.)

Jason Mitchell, the general manager of Keystone Shops, said the shop has limited its hours in March because supply is low. The store is still offering consultations. He expects the store to fully reopen later this month.

Keystone Shop’s third dispensary is expected to open on Packer Avenue in South Philadelphia later this year. In addition to the business’s second location in Montgomery County, Wolf recently approved a dispensary located in York County and the state’s final grower/processor in Franklin County.

“Each week, we are making great strides in expanding our network where patients with a medical marijuana card can get medical marijuana,” Wolf said in a statement. “The approval of two more dispensaries and our final grower/processor is another positive step forward.”

More than 21,000 patients have registered to participate in the medical marijuana program, and more than 6,000 of them have been certified by a physician. More than 2,200 patients have purchased medical marijuana.
