Lt. Gov. John Fetterman's stops have been scheduled for Clinton, Lackawanna, Schuylkill, and Blair counties.

Hundreds of advocates have already taken the opportunity to make their voices heard during Lt. Gov. John Fetterman's marijuana legalization listening tour. At all but one stop — where the crowd was evenly split — supporters have outnumbered opponents. Local representatives and senators have been on hand in many cases.

Let's keep up the momentum.

Please plan to attend one of the lieutenant governor's stops on his listening tour, which will include all 67 counties. Here are his upcoming stops:

Meadville (Crawford County)

Consider arriving early: In some cases, crowds have been standing-room only.

You can also submit comments online to let the governor know why you support making marijuana legal. (Feel free to draw from our Top 10 document or other materials.) Consider making a pitch for an inclusive, diverse industry, for allowing home cultivation, and for expunging past convictions.

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.
