Gov. Tom Wolf calls for legalizing recreational marijuana in Pennsylvania

Gov. Tom Wolf and Lt. Gov. John Fetterman have combined their voices in calling for Pennsylvania to fully legalize marijuana.

At a Capitol news conference on Wednesday, Wolf, moved beyond his previously stated position of wanting to study the experience of the 11 other states as well as the District of Columbia that have passed marijuana legalization laws, to announce he thinks it’s time for this state to join them.

He said several legislators “agree with the many Pennsylvanians with making adult-use regulated marijuana use legal – that includes me,” Wolf said. “I agree.”

Fetterman, who has been a proponent of marijuana legalization, declared, “If you are opposed to the recreational adult use of cannabis that is a minority view now in Pennsylvania.”

Acknowledging it’ll likely take longer to get the General Assembly to go along with legalizing recreational adult-use pot, Wolf and Fetterman urged the General Assembly to immediately pass legislation to decriminalize non-violent and small cannabis-related offenses as well as find a way to expunge past convictions of those who have those kind of offenses on their criminal record.
