Pennsylvania’s NORML chapters along with Keystone Cannabis Coalition are hosting a “Rally for Reform” in the State Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg.

Speakers include Auditor General Eugene DePasquale, Lt. Governor candidate John Fetterman, Rep. Jake Wheatley, Rep. Ed Gainey, Senator Daylin Leach, Sen. Sharif Street and Bethlehem City Councilwoman Olga Negrón.

” With cannabis arrest counts rising across the state and neighboring states threatening legalization, the time is right for this discussion in Pennsylvania.
If Pennsylvanians could vote on cannabis legalization in November, I am confident that we would win.”

-Jeff Riedy, Executive Director Lehigh Valley NORML

“Thousands of our citizens are finding relief legally for thanks to Pennsylvania’s medical cannabis law. But our citizens should not have to have a “serious medical condition” in order to be protected from an immoral and archaic law.”

-Theresa Nightingale, Pittsburgh NORML Women’s Alliance

“We know we are on the right side of history and we refuse to remain silent while our elected officials hide behind decades old nonsense ignoring the fact that over 60% of Pennsylvanians support full legalization.”

-Les Stark, Keystone Cannabis Coalition

“Cannabis prohibition costs our taxpayers over $300 million annually. Persons of color are charged at significantly higher rates than their white counterparts despite similar patterns of use. Its time to end the ridiculous war on cannabis and realize the significant economic opportunities afforded by legalization.”

-Patrick K. Nightingale, Executive Director Pittsburgh NORML
