Sen. Leach Reintroduces Medical Marijuana Bill

State Sen. Daylin Leach, D-17, of Montgomery County, reintroduced a bill Tuesday that would permit the use of marijuana for medical treatment in Pennsylvania.

Leach and Republican state Sen. Mike Folmer held a press conference in the Capitol Rotunda Tuesday morning to announce Senate Bill 3, which is a largely unchanged version of a bill introduced last year. That bill passed the senate 43-7 with bipartisan support before dying in the house near the end of the legislative session.

The bill would allow for the use of marijuana in treating seizure disorders in children, as well an array of other afflictions.

“What Sen. Leach wants is a bill that will help as many Pennsylvanians as possible,” said Leach’s press secretary Steve Hoenstine. “There are thousands of people with all sorts of conditions that could benefit from medical cannabis.” [Read more at The Deleware County Daily Times]
