Cannabis crusaders to converge on Commonwealth capital

Pennsylvania NORML chapters, the ACLU-PA and the Keystone Cannabis Coalition will lead a gathering in Harrisburg next week to speak with legislators about decriminalizing and legalizing cannabis in the Keystone State.

“Considering our current political climate, we have a unique opportunity to assemble the voices of cannabis advocacy from across this state to show legislators that we are united in our resolve for reform,” said Jeff Riedy, Executive Director of Lehigh Valley NORML.

Spearheading the convening of members and volunteers from the public-interest advocacy group’s PittsburghPhilly and Lancaster chapters, Riedy will lead supporters scheduled to participate in a press conference, man education tables and visit with elected officials.

The first of several planned marijuana rally days, the all-day event will feature elected officials including Pennsylvania State Representative Ed Gainey, advocates, medical marijuana patients, cannabis consumers and a demonstration of a typical cannabis home cultivation setup.

“With Delaware and New Jersey poised to legalize cannabis in 2018 we think Pennsylvania is ready to join the conversation,” said Chris Goldstein of Philly NORML.
