Pa. House pulls vote on medical marijuana bill

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A bill to legalize medical marijuana was scheduled for a House vote Monday, but the vote has been pulled from the schedule.

Sources told ABC 27 an amendment is expected to be introduced that would “water” down Senate Bill 3 by putting caps on THC and the cannabis plant.

A rally will be held in the Capitol Rotunda at noon. A family who lost their child to Dravet syndrome, a severe seizure disorder, will speak. They believe their child would still be alive if medical cannabis was legal in Pennsylvania.

Those in favor of medical cannabis have been using the battle cry “Still sick, still waiting.”
