Bill Peduto, the Mayor of Pittsburgh, may not have always made it a priority to support legalizing marijuana for recreational use, but it looks like now he does.

In a tweet he made on Friday, he said he supports Pennsylvania Attorney General Eugene DePasquale’s campaign to make marijuana legal for recreational users.

He wrote, “I fully support Auditor General DePasqualeโ€™s Plan to legalize/regulate/tax marijuana in Pennsylvania. More importantly, so do a majority of Pennsylvanians.”

He tweeted, “This is something that a majority of Pennsylvanians support. And I think it’s time that the state legislature take action.”

When asked if he would smoke pot, Peduto has said, “Not if I were in the position that I’m in today. If I was a regular citizen and it was legal I guess I’d have to make that decision at that point, but not as an elected official.”

It was in 2016 that Pennsylvania legalized medical marijuana.
