BLOG: I Urge the Legislature to Legalize Medical Marijuana

By: Governor Tom Wolf

March 13, 2016

Today, I am continuing to urge the legislature to pass medical marijuana legislation. As I have said for years, I support the legalization of medical marijuana and I believe it is long past time to provide this important medical relief to patients and families across the commonwealth.

I have met with patients and families, held roundtables, and urged action on this legislation since taking office. Additionally, my administration pushed forward with a program to expand research into the use of Cannabidiol for the treatment of children with intractable seizures.

It is time to legalize medical marijuana because we should not deny doctor-recommended treatment that could help people suffering from seizures or cancer patients affected by chemotherapy. I urge quick action by the legislature to legalize medical marijuana.
