Medical Cannabis Listening Session: May 1, 2014, 6 P.M – 8 P.M.
Southeastern Adams Volunteer Emergency Services Building
5865 Hanover Road
Hanover, PA, 17331
Senator Richard Alloway II, Representative Dan Mouland, and Representative Will Tallman will host an educational forum on Thursday, May 1, in Hanover, PA regarding the potential use of cannabis for medicinal purposes.
The listening session will focus on Senate Bill 1182, legislation that would legalize the use of medical cannabis.
Senator Mike Folmer, who introduced the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Act, will attend the listening session and offer his perspective on the legislation. The forum will also feature testimony from members of the medical community, community support services organizations, local individuals and families who could be impacted by the legislation, and a local pastor.
“The potential legalization of cannabis for medical purposes has generated a wide range of strong opinions from local residents, and lawmakers have a responsibility to make sure that we separate fact from fiction in order to make a decision that is best for Pennsylvania,” Alloway said. “Any change in policy regarding cannabis would be a significant shift for the state, and it is important for the debate to be driven by facts, rather than rhetoric from either side of the debate.”
