It's uncertain whether the Senate Republican Caucus will move forward with the proposed legislation.
As an organizationthat deal with patients who relies on medical marijuana in Pennsylvania, We closely following the developments around the legalization of adult-use cannabis. We appreciate Rep. Chris Rabb's stance on the matter. As someone from Philadelphia and a supporter of legalization, he emphasizes the importance of not rushing the process. It's encouraging to hear a lawmaker prioritize equity over state revenue when discussing potential laws.
However, there are ongoing issues with the current medical marijuana system in the state that need addressing. These problems shouldn't be overlooked or repeated as we transition to legalized adult-use cannabis. It's crucial that public health remains the primary focus, and the needs of communities that have been inadequately served by the current system are finally met. As patients, We hope these considerations are at the forefront of any new legislation.
