YORK, Pa. - "Plants not pills," "go green," and "end cannabis prohibition," are all sayings that were heard in York's Continental Square on Saturday. The Keystone Cannabis Coalition held a rally to show its support for bills that would legalize medical marijuana and growing hemp in Pennsylvania. The coalition is also calling for immediate decriminalization of cannabis. About 100 people participated in the rally.

"Make them aware of the potential benefits of taxation, regulation and how that's always going to be better than an illegal underground, unregulated system," said Les Start, with Keystone Cannabis Coalition.

Multiple bills that would legalize hemp growth and medical marijuana are already in the State House.
