Medicinal Use of Cannabis
Introduced by Senators Mike Folmer and Daylin Leach, Senate Bill 3 (formerly SB 1182), the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Act, would allow Pennsylvania physicians to prescribe medications containing oils derived from cannabis.
Senator Wiley was proud to be one of the first Senators to sign on as a co-sponsor of this bi-partisan effort to legalize the use of medicinal cannabis in the Commonwealth. Senate Bill 3 has over 20 bi-partisan co-sponsors as of March 2015.
“I am encouraged by the bi-partisan movement to establish this mechanism for those who will be tremendously impacted by the treatment. We have an opportunity to make better the lives of people in this Commonwealth,” said Senator Wiley.

Recently, Governor Wolf initiated a medical marijuana pilot program in Pennsylvania. To learn more, read the April 10th story from the Tribune-Democrat online here: Wolf moves to launch medical marijuana pilot in Pennsylvania
The Senate passed SB3 by a vote of 40-7 on Tuesday, May 12th, 2015. The bill will go over to the House to seek concurrence. You can read my press release in response to its passage here: Wiley Votes to Allow Use of Medical Cannabis in the Commonwealth.
