A free health and wellness fair will be held this Sunday to provide consumers and the general public with information about the uses of medical products derived from marijuana.

The event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Palisades Ballroom, 100 Fifth Ave., McKeesport, is being supported by Mayor Michael Cherepko and is sponsored by McKeesport-based PurePenn and Pittsburgh-based Compassionate Certification Centers.

"It will be a great opportunity for the community to learn about medical marijuana," said Gina Rosso, community liaison for PurePenn.
