Pennsylvania Medical Solutions, the company setting up a medical marijuana growing and processing facility in Scranton, is now a city property owner.

Pennsylvania Medical Solutions, owned by Vireo Health based in Minnesota, purchased the former Pennsylvania Clothing Recyclers plant at 2000 Rosanna Ave. for $2 million from Jesse J. and Elaine P. Hinkley of Scranton, according to a property transfer filed in Lackawanna County Court on Monday. The building is under renovation.

The state Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana awarded Pennsylvania Medical Solutions one of two permits in the 10-county northeast region, which includes Lackawanna, Luzerne and Lehigh counties. The firm plans to hire 30 people in management, security and quality control positions.
