Pennsylvania Proposes Sale of Recreational Cannabis in Liqour Stores
On Monday, Pennsylvania legislator David Delloso proposed a bill that could change the status quo for cannabis in the state. This came a few days after Governor Tom Wolf publicly announced his support for legalization of recreational marijuana. He even urged legislators to take action on the matter.
If passed, the bill would legalize the sale of recreational cannabis in the state’s liquor stores. Cannabis could only be purchased by people 21 and over who can produce a valid ID.
However, the bill wouldn’t decriminalize growing personal marijuana or the average person selling it. The bill prohibits those that don’t work in “legitimate, State-operated stores” from selling cannabis.
At the moment, it’s unsure if the bill will be passed. The majority of the bill’s supporters are Democrats, while most of Pennsylvania’s elected legislators are Republicans.
