Watch This: Pennsylvania Governor Wants Medical Cannabis Bill to Pass

Published on April 8, 2016 · Last updated July 28, 2020

In case you missed it, Governor Tom Wolf (D-PA) is not only openly in favor of legalizing cannabis for medical use in the state of Pennsylvania, he even went so far as to release an official video from the office of the governor, urging the Legislature to pass Senate Bill 3, the medical marijuana bill that has been under consideration and subject to intense debate since its introduction in January of 2015.

Gov. Wolf’s words speak for themselves:

“I believe it is long past time to provide this important medical relief to patients and families across the commonwealth.”

A strong message from the leader of the state, Pennsylvania is long overdue for an overhaul of its cannabis laws, which are some of the strictest in the nation despite polls that show 88 percent of Pennsylvanians supporting the medicinal use of cannabis.
