Pennsylvania Governor Calls For Legalizing Marijuana As Part Of Covid-19 Economic Recovery Plan

Tom Wolf released the agenda last Wednesday in a press release

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf released a legislative agenda Wednesday to assist in the Covid-19 economic recovery, including legalizing recreational marijuana.

In a press release outlining his agenda, Wolf asked the legislature to legalize recreational marijuana — with some of the proceeds going to grants for existing small businesses and 50% of the funds dedicated to historically disadvantaged businesses.

In addition to the small business grant funding, Wolf also called for a portion of the revenue be used to “further restorative justice programs that give priority to repairing the harm done to crime victims and communities as a result of marijuana criminalization,” the release says. He also asked that the General Assembly pursue criminal justice reform policies that would “restore justice” for those convicted of marijuana-related offenses.
