I can’t imagine it passing, but it sure would be smart. (Which is why I can’t see it passing.)
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -While marijuana is still against federal law, states are moving in the opposite direction.
Pa. Sen. Daylin Leach, a suburban Philadelphia Democrat, wants Pennsylvania to join the movement, treating marijuana like tobacco and alcohol.
“There are other intoxicants that are far worse that we do not treat the same way. We do not accuse people of criminal offenses for consuming,” Leach said at a Harrisburg press conference Monday afternoon as he introduced a bill to legalize pot.
Leach argues marijuana is safer that other legal drugs.
“Marijuana is not physically addictive,” he said. “Alcohol and tobacco are physically addictive.”
I don’t know about the addictive part, but we already know tobacco and alcohol are. So what’s the difference?
