202nd Legislative District
|Medical Marijuana Information|
Medical marijuana is now legal in 13 states and is being actively considered in several others, including New Jersey and New York. It is time for Pennsylvania to do the same.
I have heard from hundreds of patients who say medical marijuana would help to ease their pain and suffering. It is on their behalf I have introduced H.B. 1181. Click here to read my full remarks from a recent news conference. Click here to read my testimony from a House Health and Human Services Committee hearing on my bill.
Support for this bill is growing. Several newspapers have written editorials calling for the legal use of medical marijuana, including the Pocono Record, and KDKA-AM Radio Host Marty Griffin has spoken favorably of it on his program. I thank them all for their support.
But for this bill to become law, we need to change the attitudes of many legislators and the public. I encourage you to take my survey and let your voice be heard on this important health-care issue.
