The Keystone State has more support for legal recreational marijuana.
State Rep. Jake Wheatley (D-Alleghney) tweeted on Monday an introduction of bill HB50, which would “legalize adult-use cannabis & address decades of social injustice.”
Sen. Sharif Street (D) remared that it is “time for us to join the new age and enter the cannabis economy.”
HB50 would provide incentives for businesses to partner with Pennsylvania farmers, as well as provide investments in student debt forgiveness, after-school programs, and affordable housing.
Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale has estimated that the legalization and taxation of recreational marijuana could bring in $580 million in revenue.
