The Senate already passed the bill by a wide margin.
Williams wrote that he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 16 years ago, and credits medicinal marijuana with helping him in his daily battle.
“If put to a vote, the bill would pass, and the Gov. Tom Wolf has promised to sign it—meaning all that separates seriously ill and suffering Pennsylvanians from access to a critical treatment is political maneuvering,” Williams writes.
Williams will be in Harrisburg Thursday to urge lawmakers to legalize medical marijuana.
