HARRISBURG – State Sen. Dan Laughlin (R-49) will soon introduce legislation seeking to amend Pennsylvania's Uniform Firearms Act to conform with the state's medical marijuana laws. The proposed amendment aims to address the prohibition on medical marijuana users owning firearms, ensuring that patients can exercise their Second Amendment rights while adhering to state regulations.
The data shows why hundreds of thousands of patients qualify for a medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania. With a comprehensive list of qualifying conditions, including chronic pain, cancer, epilepsy, and PTSD, the state's medical marijuana Program provides access to safe and effective treatment options.
Pennsylvania's hopes for marijuana legalization reached new highs after Gov. Josh Shapiro's budget address Tuesday, when he expressed support for adult-use legalization. This statement has ignited discussions across the state, raising anticipation among advocates and patients alike.
