New PA Medical Marijuana Legalization Bill in the Works

Pennsylvania might have another shot at legalizing medical marijuana sooner rather than later.

A new bipartisan group of state lawmakers is working on a compromise bill to legalize MMJ after a previous attempt hit a wall in a committee controlled by an anti-cannabis representative and a second measure struggled to gain any real traction.

The new attempt aims to represent a middle ground between the other two measures, according to a local Fox affiliate.

Lawmakers have been meeting on a weekly basis to hammer out a workable bill that will get past both the House of Representatives and the state Senate, and ultimately to Gov. Tom Wolf, who has been a vocal supporter of legalizing MMJ.

But there are several sticking points, the TV station reported, including the number of dispensaries and cultivation sites that would be allowed.

A key lawmaker told the station he hopes to get the bill in front of a legislative committee by September.
