Dozens of people came together Saturday afternoon to show their support for the legalization of medical marijuana.

The rally, hosted by the Keystone Cannabis Coalition, was held in Continental Square in Downtown York.

Many people held signs, supporting Senate Bill 1182.

The group also heard from several guest speakers on how the legalization of medical marijuana could change the lives of people living with medical issues.

“It’s every single day and every single night; they never get a break,” said Les Stark with the Keystone Cannabis Coalition. “If they can get this medical cannabis medicine, they don’t know for certain that it will help and it may not help everybody, but we deserve that chance,” he said.

Senate Bill 1182 is likely to be voted on shortly after the General Assembly returns from summer recess on September 15th.
