Pro-Cannabis Rally at PA State Capitol. We Need you!!!!
Year after year the PA legislature takes up bill
after bill and debates it until it reaches a vote - meanwhile our medical
marijuana bills HB1653 and SB1003 languish in committees which don't seem to have any
interest in having any debate. Marijuana will one day be legalized in
Pennsylvania, for all adults or just for medical use, but it will take much
more effort on the part of all interested parties if that is to become a
reality. Can you help us bring 100 legalization-friendly citizens out to show
Join us on March 27th to rally at the state Capitol for an end to cannabis prohibition. We need to show our elected officials that this issue is not going away; that cannabis consumers, advocates, and patients will not sit idly by while this plant remains unjustly classified as harmful. Thousands of people get arrested every year, the vast majority for simple possession, and many still languish in our jails. Sick and dying patients are forced to use harmful pharmaceuticals, but cannabis could give them a much higher quality of life. Many patients already choose to break the law and use cannabis as medicine, and these patients face possible arrest, unreasonable drug tests, loss of physician trust, and loss of pain management.
