Gov. Tom Wolf has finally opened his mind to the idea of legalizing recreational weed use in Pennsylvania … after Lt. Gov. John Fetterman shined a little light on the matter.
Wolf, who has taken years to warm up to the notion, came out in support of the move on Wednesday. His statement follows Fetterman’s recent statewide “recreational marijuana tour” — which was, apparently, a lot more productive than it sounds like it would be.
“We now know the majority of Pennsylvanians are in favor of legalization, and that includes me,” Wolf said at a Capitol news conference. “I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish together, especially the criminal justice reforms I am proposing today, which will have an immediately positive influence on thousands of families across Pennsylvania.”
