2 PA state senators introduce bill to legalize marijuana for rec. purposes

10.16.19 | Bob Price

Besides calling for full-blown legalization, Democrats Daylin Leach and Sharif Street also want to expunge the criminal convictions of anyone caught possessing a small amount of cannabis.

They support licensing Pennsylvania residents, so they can grow marijuana for their own personal use.

Critics say-- in the midst of a raging opioid epidemic and concerns about the safety of vaping-- legalization of marijuana is the last thing Pennsylvania should be doing right now.
