PA Senate Will Vote on Medical Marijuana

But opposition expected in the House.

“A measure to legalize medical marijuana in Pennsylvania could be ready for a state Senate committee vote this month, supporters say,” Newsworks reports. “The bill would set up state oversight of doctors to prescribe marijuana for a range of illnesses, said Sen. Mike Folmer, R-Lebanon, the Republican leading the charge for medical marijuana.”

Senate approval is expected, but the plan is expected to meet opposition — and perhaps failure — in the House. (Newsworks)
