HARRISBURG, Pa. (KDKA) – Add Pennsylvania to the list of states where residents could be allowed to possess and smoke marijuana legally.

Democrat State Sen. Daylin Leach, who represents Montgomery and Delaware counties, announced plans to introduce legislation that would legalize marijuana in Pennsylvania.

The bill would legalize marijuana for adults over the age of 21, and regulated just like alcohol is. It would still be illegal to drive under the influence of marijuana, behave badly while publicly intoxicated, or sell pot to minors.

According to Leach, “Like alcohol, legalization and regulation will make marijuana safer. People will no longer have to buy it on the streets from criminals who may have laced their product with other dangerous drugs. People buying legally will know exactly what they are getting and be able to rely on the safety of what they are purchasing.”

A press release from Leach’s office says that according to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, in 2006, an average year, 24,685 marijuana arrests were made in Pennsylvania at a cost to the taxpayers of $325.36 million. Leach says “each year we not only waste a similar amount, we leave several hundred million dollars on the table in taxes that we do not collect because marijuana is illegal, rather than regulated and taxed.”

Governor Tom Corbett has been opposed to legalizing marijuana, even for medicinal purposes.

Senator Leach says, “This horrific policy must end. People around the nation are realizing that. And it is a moral imperative that Pennsylvania wake up and end prohibition now.”

Maybe you meant to say there is nothing important to you in Pennsylvania.

That would require him actually making decisions on his own without being a corporate puppet. Good luck finding a president who is brave enough for that.

Analysts are saying this will never go through because both Republicans and Democrats in the rural PA areas are typically very conservative when it comes to social issues like this...

and PA can't even get medical pot legal so why the hell would it become legal for recreational use?

so what exactly do you consider important?

you think your place of residence is important because its the nations capital? do you know Philadelphia and York were both home to the nations capital at one point?

I don't understand why you don't think the legalization of hemp in agricultural states will change industry on a massive scale.

I don't think you understand how much we've been lied to.

I don't think you're properly using your mind to think.

I think you should.
