Lt. Gov. John Fetterman is bringing his cannabis listening tour to a stop in Bucks County next Wednesday, May 15, and four weekend sessions on May 18 and 19 in Philadelphia.
Fetterman has been sounding out state residents on their views about legalizing marijuana for adult recreational use since mid-February, holding town hall events in all 67 Pennsylvania counties. All are free and open to the public. State representatives and senators and county commissioners have been invited. Residents who can’t attend can comment online by clicking here or going to https://bit.ly/2Wu8PEd.
According to Fetterman’s spokesperson, overall the majority of people who show up to the sessions have supported legalization. “In general, we’re finding what the polls have already found — that about 60 to 70 percent are in favor of it,” said Christina Kauffman.
At the tour’s conclusion, Fetterman will send Gov. Tom Wolf a report.
