SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM REPRESENTATIVE DAN DEASY

Report to the People:

A few weeks ago, the General Assembly passed the the governor signed into law S.B. 3, which provides for the legalization of medical marijuana in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

As a supporter of medical marijuana I cast a “yes” vote for this legislation so that we can provide another tool for doctors to help patients, including countess suffering children, who are battling debilitating and life-threatening illnesses.  The law sets standards for tracking plants, certifying physicians and licensing growers, dispensaries and physicians. Doctors will be able to prescribe marijuana in pill, oil, vapor, or liquid form. Patients will not be able to legally obtain marijuana to smoke and will not be able to grow it on their own.

For so many Pennsylvanians with illnesses such as cancer, HIV/AIDS,  epilepsy, post traumatic stress disorder, or other qualifying conditions, medical marijuana can provide hope and relief.  Pennsylvania becomes the 24th state along with the District of Columbia and Guam to allow for comprehensive public medical marijuana and cannabis programs.

Please call my office at 412-928-9514 for a copy of this new law or any other legislation pending in the General Assembly.
