HARRISBURG (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — Governor Tom Wolf's administration announced Monday that the dry leaf form of medical marijuana will be available in dispensaries as early as Wednesday.

About half of the state's 28 dispensaries will be able to sell plant product Aug. 1, including the Cresco Yeltrah locations in Butler and Pittsburgh and Solevo in Squirrel Hill.

All dispensaries will sell dry leaf marijuana by Aug. 8. Currently, dispensaries can only sell medical marijuana in forms such as oils, pills and topicals.

But smoking dry leaf marijuana is still illegal in Pennsylvania. Patients will have to vaporize the product, which uses a lower temperature to release the healing chemicals in marijuana with fewer carcinogenic results as combustion.

Patients caught smoking medical marijuana could have their card revoked.  

Sales will begin Aug. 1 at the following dispensaries:

•             Columbia Care, 1790 North Keyser Avenue, Scranton;
