Medicinal Use of Cannabis
Senate Bill 1182, the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Act, would allow Pennsylvania physicians to prescribe medications containing oils derived from cannabis. This legislation would NOT allow the use of cannabis for recreational purposes.
The legislation was introduced by Senators Daylin Leach and Mike Folmer. Senator Wiley is proud to be one of the first Senators to sign on as a co-sponsor to this bill.
We have an opportunity to make the lives of people better. Unfortunately, the misinformation and the lack of willingness to understand this issue are leading to a delay in providing a proven, effective treatment for those with a variety of medical needs.
Medical cannabis has been proven effective across the nation, but unfortunately, Pennsylvania patients have no access to the natural plant. By prohibiting the use of medical cannabis we are denying our most vulnerable citizens an improved quality of health and life.
Please take a few minutes to view some of the attached videos and articles on this topic. You can also visit Senator Leach’s website, which features stories of children with extreme medical conditions who would benefit from the legal use of medical cannabis in Pennsylvania.
