Philip Vecchio started this petition to Governor Tom Wolf

I am a skilled union tradesman and a certified medical marijuana patient in the State of Pennsylvania. Employers in PA are imposing rules and threatening terminations of employees that choose to responsibly use medical marijuana to treat a variety of ailments. I personally feel that I am much safer and far more productive as a medical marijuana patient than a user of narcotic painkillers. I have been prescribed both narcotics and medical marijuana at different times and I choose medical marijuana because it’s what works for me. My colleagues in the construction industry who suffer from similar issues have discussed with me on a number of occasions the benefits they also receive from marijuana in general but the number 1 response I get when I ask them why they still use other substances to regularly treat their problems they tell me that they are concerned about being tested and subsequently fired by their employers for using marijuana on a regular basis. That being said, myself and other medical marijuana patients aren’t using marijuana to get high on the job but we are nonetheless being threatened with unemployment if we don’t find an alternative medicine, like prescription drugs. I find this policy counterproductive and I ask that Governor Wolf find a way to legislate change. Thank you all for your time and support.
