Pa. Gov. Wolf comes out in support of legalizing cannabis!

Great news! Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf now supports legalizing cannabis for adults.

Gov. Wolf’s announcement comes on the heels of Lt. Gov. John Fetterman’s statewide listening tour to all 67 counties, where Fetterman found Pennsylvanians overwhelmingly support legalization. You can read the tour report here.

Unfortunately, there’s also bad news: The Pennsylvania House of Representatives’ Republican leaders derided Gov. Wolf’s support for legalization.

But now is not time to despair. The public at large is rapidly evolving on marijuana legalization, and so are legislators. Take a few minutes to email your state lawmakers. Our free software and editable draft letters make it a quick, simple process to make your voice heard.

Patients and their loved ones didn’t give up when House Speaker Mike Turzai (R) tried to slam the door shut on medical cannabis, and we can’t give up now because of his disdain for cannabis policy reform. If legislators don’t evolve by 2020, voters will have a chance to change who represents them in Harrisburg. 

Please raise your voice. Then, spread the word to other Pennsylvanians so that they, too, can help bring humane cannabis policies to the Keystone State.

When deciding what you'd like to say, feel free to draw from our document on the Top 10 reasons to end marijuana prohibition or other materials. You may want to consider making a pitch for an inclusive, diverse industry, for allowing home cultivation, and for expunging past convictions.

Even if you're not up for speaking in public, you can still make your voice heard. Fetterman has been asking for a show of hands for supporters and opponents, and the governor's office is soliciting feedback on the issue online.

This is a great opportunity to build momentum for commonsense, humane marijuana laws. Don't miss your chance to let your elected officials know it's time to stop branding Pennsylvanians criminals for a substance that's safer than alcohol.

And please spread the word to help grow the chorus for reform.
