Company Introduces Lawsuit to Halt Medical Cannabis in Pennsylvania
Author: Addison Herron- Wheeler  15/09/2017 - 20:28:00

A company called Keystone ReLeaf, LLC in Pennsylvania is currently suing the state in an attempt to halt the permitting process for its medical cannabis program. According to Hoban Law Group’s Pennsylvania Practice Chair, Steve Schain, Keystone ReLeaf, LLC’s lawsuit doesn’t have a leg to stand on. “At best, Keystone ReLeaf, LLC’s claims and allegations are premature; at worst, they’re flat wrong,” he explained in a recent press release

The company first filed their suit on September 8, when they made a Declaratory Action Complaint and Injunction Petition to halt the cannabis program. Their claims are that the state has not been transparent in their application process. Allegedly, they refused to make public the companies that were chosen for medical licenses, and acted in an “arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable manner,” according to the Keystone ReLeaf, LLC claim. 

However there is one legislator, Sen. Daylin Leach, who is asking the company to drop the suit.

According to the Philly Voice, Leach also feels that the lawsuit shouldn’t happen. She wrote a letter to the company’s attorney, asking that they try and remedy their own injustices in a way that does not halt the entire emerging cannabis industry. “My commitment to neutrality extends to your lawsuit,” Leach explained in the letter. “That said, it is my belief that any unjust inconvenience or financial loss your client may have suffered can be remedied by a court in many ways short of shutting down the entire program.”

Based on these reactions and overall comments in the media and from social observers, it looks like most think that this company shouldn’t pursue the lawsuit just because they feel they weren’t fairly considered. Hopefully, Keystone ReLeaf, LLC will back down and settle their claim more privately, instead choosing a course of action that affects the entire industry.
