Gov. Tom Wolf has finally opened his mind to the idea of legalizing recreational weed use in Pennsylvania … after Lt. Gov. John Fetterman shined a little light on the matter.
Wolf, who has taken years to warm up to the notion, came out in support of the move on Wednesday. His statement follows Fetterman’s recent statewide “recreational marijuana tour” — which was, apparently, a lot more productive than it sounds like it would be.
“We now know the majority of Pennsylvanians are in favor of legalization, and that includes me,” Wolf said at a Capitol news conference. “I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish together, especially the criminal justice reforms I am proposing today, which will have an immediately positive influence on thousands of families across Pennsylvania.”
As part of the recreational marijuana tour, Fetterman visited the state’s 67 counties between February and May to hear from Pennsylvanians on their level of support for the legalization of marijuana. Wolf said that “among the many who voiced their opinions, the majority support legalization.” (This comes as a surprise to approximately no one but Wolf, apparently, seeing as polls dating back a few years show that a majority of Pennsylvanians have supported legalizing weed.)

The reality today is if cannabis and cannabis-related businesses don’t keep up, they’ll lose sales, market share, and future growth potential to competitors. With that in mind, below are five of the key digital marketing…
Seven months into the legal recreational marijuana landscape, Connecticut’s previously underground cannabis community is enjoying public consumption parties where growers show off flower specimens in what they believe is a gray area in the law. Groups such as the CT CannaWarriors, High Bazaar and the New England Craft Cannabis Alliance, which have been advocating for years for full legalization…
