Keystone Cannabis Reform Rally

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.

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.

    Let us people who suffer from a chronic disease like Crohn’s disease have some kind of relief from the pain it causes me…I actually don’t have an appetite for any food at all…if I had to make a meal and eat I wouldn’t eat at all…the people who suffer from a chronic illness have no one to speak up for us and I know if the people who do put the laws through to get to become a new law would just be open-minded and listen to us and know what I go through maybe we can get this law passed.Thanks!!

      In fact we see when those who make the laws either listen to those suffering or (pray tell) have an illness befall a loved one, they almost always change their tune.
