Medical marijuana legislation is being sent to Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, after several years of urging by parents of children suffering from debilitating seizures.
The Pennsylvania House passed the bill Wednesday, 149-46, approving legislation that had bounced between the House and Senate starting last May.
Wolf supports the bill and is poised to make Pennsylvania the 24th state to legalize a comprehensive medical marijuana program.
It wouldn’t take effect for a month and the legislation’s drafters expect it’ll take two years to write regulations and get retailers opened.
