Pennsylvania Bill Will Place Recreational Marijuana on 2020 Ballot

The Pennsylvania Senate introduced a bill titled the Legalization of Marijuana for Personal Use by Adults Referendum Act, which will give residents the ability to vote for legalizing marijuana in 2020. Unlike other states, the referendum will be nonbinding, and is only intended to provide the General Assembly with information on whether residents in the state favor legalization.

The ballot question will simply ask voters “Shall the Pennsylvania General Assembly legalize marijuana for personal use by adults?” Following the vote, the General Assembly may choose to follow the results of the referendum, and adopt regulations to allow or prohibit recreational marijuana.

There has been a recent uptick in activity in the state with Philadelphia introducing a resolution, that if passed, would ask the General Assembly and the Governor to enact legislation to decriminalize, regulate and tax recreational marijuana.
