New Push To Legalize Pot In Pennsylvania

State Sen. Daylin Leach (D-17th) announced Monday his proposal to legalize marijuana in Pennsylvania, a move swiftly dismissed by a spokeswoman for Gov. Tom Corbett (R) as not being “in the interest of public safety.” Unlike previous proposals to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes, Leach’s bill would legalize it for anyone over 21 to use. He said it would be treated much in the same way alcohol is.
