Daylin Leach, A Democrat From Montgomery County, Has Introduced One.

DePasquales estimates are based on the effects of regulated marijuana industries in other states. He said revenue boosts have been $220 million for Washington, $129 million for Colorado and $65.4 million for Oregon. The nearly two-year process to start Pennsylvanias medical marijuana program passed into law in April 2016 without support from most Lancaster County lawmakers . Sen. Scott Martin, a Martic Township Republican, was elected to the 13th state Senate district in November, so he did not participate in that vote. Now on the Appropriations Committee, Martin said he doesnt think its a wise decision to pursue regulating recreational marijuana for financial reasons. I would never engage in that conversation on the premise of it will raise revenue, Martin said. We have to talk about it with a public safety perspective. He said he hasnt heard any specific proposals in the Senate for legalizing marijuana use, though Sen. Daylin Leach, a Democrat from Montgomery County, has introduced one. Leachs bill would regulate marijuana similar to the current regulation of alcoholic beverages.
