Bill Introduced to Legalize Recreational Marijuana in Pennsylvania

We always speculate and wonder what will be the next state to legalize recreational marijuana in America. Well if one state representative has his way, it will be Pennsylvania.

State Representative Jake Wheatley introduced a bill to legalize recreational marijuana in Pennsylvania. In addition to allowing sales and possession of cannabis, the bill would also release people in jail and expunge old records for marijuana crimes.

“For far too long, the criminal justice system has unfairly punished Pennsylvanians, especially minorities, who are caught with cannabis,” Wheatley said.

Several Pennsylvania Democrats co-sponsored Wheatley's bill, and a number of prominent politicians in the state support legalization. However Republicans currently control the state legislature, and it appears they're in no rush to legalize recreational marijuana. And Democratic Governor Tom Wolf, despite his defense of the state's medical marijuana program, says he does not support legalizing cannabis recreationally.

However, Pennsylvania midterm elections are in November, so perhaps if Democratic voters come out in droves and retake the state legislature, the likelihood that the state will legalize recreational marijuana will improve dramatically.
