The only thing that gives me hope in his country. I hope to start marketing hemp construction materials soon, flooring mainly since that's what I do.



HARRISBURG (WPMT)-A bill to legalize the use of medical marijuana in Pennsylvania has cleared the state Senate and now heads to the state House of Representatives.


It's progress.

I wish them luck. NYS passed one that is horribly and deliberately restrictive.

I'm honestly surprised about Pennsylvania. I can imagine the larger cities offered great support. S + F

The city is pretty broke but maybe things can turn around in a couple years if they see the need for legalization.

This bill is pretty restrictive still though, Wont be for people with HIV/AIDS, or Glaucoma?? I mean wow. why not those people suffering?

Hope we can get it passed, about time sanity starts to take over the country.

They should seriously legalize it for recreational purposes. After a few years when the prices go down on the legal market, the black market will fall.

Doing that, Pennsylvania becomes the East Coast's marijuana tourist capital. Then the tourists go back, especially the rich ones and wonder why they have to go so far when their state could do the same.

Will they let it happen so soon? Nope. But it's worth hoping for.

I'm a Pennsylvanian and I have a friend with Crohn's disease who desperately needs his condition to be approved for this treatment. He suffers almost constantly and he has an engineering degree. With a proper law, he could be living a productive life. Unfortunately, the current law they passed was gutted for political reasons and does not allow doctors to prescribe this treatment for all patients, just a very short list of approved conditions. It passed the senate, we'll see what the house does with it.

Harrisburg is a fickle monster. Nothing goes through that city without everyone getting a taste of the action.

I'm in pa as well. This whole restrictive nonsense is anti medical establishment.

Politicians have no right to tell doctors what to do.

Good luck, it seems to be working alright for us in Colorado.

They also have no right telling citizens what to do with their own bodies. Especially if many of them partake in said practices.

The number of conditions for which medical marijuana could be prescribed has been narrowed since the bills inception. About 39 diseases and disorders were removed from the list and include Muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, Glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, Rheumatoid arthritis, Hydrocephalus, Diabetes and Lupus.


This is a joke, why even pass it? HIV, AIDS if anything those should have been the first approved.

Only concentrates can be used? Do they know how much more money those cost compared to flower?

Sorry op didn't mean to rant in your thread but this just angers me that they limit those in need.

Yeah, we talked in another thread. Do you remember that big fire department bust they did in Pittsburgh a few years ago after they legalized gambling because they were playing routine poker games? It is no different than that. They didn't legalize gambling, they franchised gambling. If you and I sat down for a game of dice, we are still subject to prosecution, but as long as the casino and the state get a cut of the action, then it is ok, right?

Pittsburgh could be such a beautiful city. I often go there to Schenely park just to walk around and visit the Westinghouse memorial. There was once a vision for this country that would having us live unimaginably prosperous lives right now. Greed and pettiness ground all human progress to a halt. We are actually living in another dark age right now. People just don't realize it. If you compare where we are to where we could be, we are subsisting in our own shadow.

Ice been saying the same exact thing.

And Pennsylvania as a state is turning I to a giant Detroit im looking to move.

We just lost a job to a union today that I was suppose to start literally today.

Now I'm looking for work again lol.

It's like they copied NY's law. They only want concentrates so no one can grow their own medication. If you know how to make concentrates I'm gathering you're still out of luck as you can't possess plant material.

Constant control. Prohibition has been a proven failure time and time again. This hurts everyone. From the patients to the guy just walking down the road.

I guess PA has several pharma, private prison, LEO, tobacco and alcohol lobbyists on-call 24/7....

Edit: Concentrates are easier to dilute, mix with harmful ingredients. They're doing this to control the supply, poison the people (most likely imo).

The good ol boys are huge problem there, same as right across the border in NY.

As for wise guys, tons.

The system includes so many people on purpose it knows if it ever has to fail it'll take everyone with it.

It's not progress. It's like giving blacks the right to vote, but then making it so Congress has to revote on it every 10 years or so. That isn't progress. That is restrictiveness by another name. Another smokescreen to pacify the idiots that have taken over the ship, so when the mercs come in the night to kill the dissedents they don't make a stink about it. If it was real progress, the government would take weed off Section 1 classification, and stop going after people running legal dispenseries. If it was progress, agriculture would go 2 fold and people would be getting paid fairly well to relocate to crap states to become apart of the industry.

None of that is happening. In fact, the border states around Colorado are targeting the people coming in and out of there because they are so "religious on morality" they are punishing them for taking away from their profit margins and going against the grain. Pennsylvania is a racist, sexist, and mysoginistic eastern state. See Mumia Abu Jamal, and the chick that got life for killing her abusive husband in self defense for more info. Also check the Philly girls kidnapped by that sadistic fck and forced to eat their fellow captives.

Same shyt, different day.

Yup. It's sad and I bet in New York and New Jersey. The tri state area is known for it.

They like our mine shafts in the town I'm in.

I also think that concentrates and oils are a terrible idea for beginners hell even some seasoned smokers I know can't handle them.

It's real quiet and kept out of the media but the KKK has some serious clout in PA.

I expect them to have their hand in some of the legislation because they think it's a black culture thing. They are stuck in the 1950's they don't represent everyone here but they have a powerful presence trust me on that one I've seen some of it firsthand.

That'll help turn people away from it I'm sure.

Like the media reporting the cases of people eating "the entire candy bar"


It's like reporting each case of alcohol poisoning. But then they'd have to report each and every related death too

God, I hate that feeling worse than any other: when disappointment quickly follows a sigh of relief. I wish you the best. I try to think of these times as a trial for myself. If this is the worst thing you'll have to endure in this life, you can count yourself among the lucky ones, and often, I think the universe leads us into doldrums and sits us on the sidelines when we need a serious course correction. That is just my wishful ego talking, but it gets me through the moment, and at the end of the day, that is what matters most.
