The Republican Senator hopes to help curb illicit sales in the state
Sen. Mike Regan, R-Cumberland/York, has been circulating a co-sponsorship memorandum signaling Regan’s intention to introduce legislation legalizing adult-use marijuana in the state. Regan explained his rationale in a weekend guest essay circulated to newspapers in his Senate district.
Regan helped write the state’s medical marijuana program in 2016 while he was a member of the state House of Representatives, noting that 500,000 people in Pennsylvania have received prescriptions for medical marijuana since then.
“I want to build off the success of that program while ensuring its continued viability for the industry and its patients.
I also want to make sure that Pennsylvanians receive their fair share from the sale of adult-use marijuana, not the cartels and gangs whose profits are comparable to Fortune 500 companies,” Regan wrote in his op-ed.
