Legislation Introduced To Legalize Marijuana In PA

One month after a bill was introduced in the state House to legalize adult use of marijuana in Pennsylvania, a similar bill has been introduced in the state Senate. The bill would make it legal for adults age 21 and over to possess and consume small amounts of cannabis. The measure also seeks to make right past injustices for those who have been jailed or otherwise penalized for consumption or possession. Ten states along with the District of Columbia have now legalized marijuana for adult use and 33 states have legalized medical cannabis, including Pennsylvania.
