On Monday, March 31, the Keystone Cannabis Reform Rally took place in the Rotunda of the State Capitol building in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania at 10:00 AM. The urgent need for cannabis and hemp reform was stressed to around 300 onlookers. Presenters spoke for medical cannabis, for industrial hemp and the benefits and the necessity of establishing a legal, regulated market for adult consumption of cannabis, similar to the program in Colorado.
Marijuana reform rally in Pa. Capitol makes Anchorage Daily News !!! Yeah…It’s that big of a deal.
This issue (at least the medical access) is a poison pill to any who oppose. A former Gov candidate I was backing, John Hanger called on all voters to ask every General Assembly candidate where they stand on SB1182, our bipartisan med MJ bill. If against, don’t vote for that person. Period. I have NEVER heard John lay down that litmus test on any other issue. Ever. And I’ve known him a while before this run.
