Urge the Pennsylvania General Assembly to Pass Medical Marijuana Legislation

    1. Petition by

      PA Freedom Coalition

      PA

14 states and Washington D.C. have legalized the use of medical marijuana for patients with a doctors recommendation. Currently nearly 30% of the population of the US live where medical marijuana is legal. A recent poll conducted by Franklin & Marshall college shows that 80% of Pennsylvanians agree that medical marijuana should be legal. Its time to allow patients access to the medicine their doctor sees fit for their medical treatment, even if that medicine is marijuana. Scientific and anecdotal evidence show that marijuana has medicinal value. The US allowed marijuana to be prescribed up until 1942. In the late 1970s the FDA allowed marijuana to be prescribed through compassionate exemptions that were issued to a small number of patients. Under George H.W. Bush the program was ended but the patients who got the exemptions are still prescribed marijuana and recieve it from the federal government. In 2009 Rep. Cohen, and in 2010 Sen. Leach, introduced the first medical marijuana bills in the history of the PA General Assembly, H.B. 1393 and S.B. 1350. This petition urges the committees that are considering the bill, and if you live in PA your district's senator and representative in the General Assembly, to pass the Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act.
