Legislation to Allow for Medical Use of Cannabis Reintroduced in Pennsylvania Senate

April 29, 2011   ·   0 Comments

Legislation to allow for the physician supervised use of marijuana has been re-introduced in the Pennsylvania Senate.

Senate Bill 1003 would allow state-authorized patients to possess and cultivate cannabis for therapeutic purposes. The measures also seeks to allow for the state-licensed distribution and sale of medical marijuana by authorized ‘compassion centers.’ Nearly 80 percent of Pennsylvanians support the measure according to a 2010 Franklin & Marshall poll. SB 1003 has been referred to the Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee, but has yet to be assigned a hearing.

Please contact your state senator and urge them to support SB 1003. For your convenience, a pre-written letter will be e-mailed to him or her when you enter your contact information below.
