leachToday in Harrisburg, State Senator Daylin Leach will hold a press conference to make an announcement regarding the fight to pass a medical marijuana bill in our state.

Senator Leach, along with Pennsylvanians who support the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannibis Act, will gather at the capitol’s main rotunda at 9:30 this morning.

The act would legalize the use of medical marijuana by patients as recommended by doctors.

Governor Tom Corbett has said that he would veto the bill if it gets to his desk.

    Stop referring to it as medical marijuana! The proper term is medical cannabis and it is not normally smoked by people who need it. It is ingested in tea or food to relieve various health issues. It is not an invitation for recreational use. It should be treated the same as any other drug that is needed for quality of life by seriously ill people!
