#WhatAreWeWaitingFor? on medical marijuana #MMJ?
#SB3 as-is will fly through, with a solid, bipartisan majority today, as it would have the day it passed the Senate overwhelmingly. As would have almost identical #SB1182 last session, were it to have been allowed to a vote.
And yet we wait.
88% of PA wants medical marijuana. Of the remaining 12%, 2% are undecided. This mirrors its 80%++ popularity in the USA.
10% of us could not keep something away from the rest of We The People, in a functioning democratic republic.
10% of us are keeping something away from the rest of We The People right now.
And yet we wait.
Vote on #SB3, which passed the PA Senate by a margin mirroring its popularity, and would do so today in the PA House.
Governor Wolf says he would sign it, unlike the guy he beat in a landslide, who said he would not have.
We have the upper hand. Let’s not let the few and shrinking number of opponents twist that around.
We continue to withhold medicine from our sickest, including kids and vets, in the name of some failed Drug War that has never kept one intoxicant from one person who could afford it.
And yet we wait…no more, PA General Assembly. No more! #WhatAreWeWaitingFor?
