In Pennsylvania, we legalized medical marijuana in an overwhelming and bipartisan fashion, and we are months away from getting this medicine to patients that need it.“The Trump Administration must put patients’ rights first, and I will not stand for backwards attacks on the progress made in Pennsylvania to provide medicine to those in need. We are evaluating the exact impact rescinding the directive could have on Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program but I will continue to do everything in my power to protect Pennsylvania patients.”Background:Governor Wolf has sent three letters seeking to protect Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program from federal overreach, including one to Attorney General Sessions, one to the Pennsylvania delegation, and one to Congressional leaders.Governor Wolf, in these letters, vowed to pursue legal action should Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program be threatened by federal interference and urged Congress to take action to protect states that legalized medical marijuana.
