Pennsylvania House Amendment Would Alter Medical Marijuana Bill

In Pennsylvania, an amendment is making its way through the House of Representatives that would drastically alter Senate Bill 3, a bill which would legalize medical marijuana in the state.

According to Penn Live, the amendment would limit marijuana potency to 10 percent and limit the number of state licensed dispensaries to 50. In contrast, SB 3 places no limit on THC potency and sets the number of dispensaries to 130.

Other changes made by the amendment would include consolidating marijuana growers and processors into one license group and limiting the number of licenses to 25, as opposed to the 65 growers and 65 processors allowed by SB 3.

While medical marijuana advocates are hoping the amendment does not get included in the bill, many expect it to be included. The amendment has strong support in the House and is the only proposed amendment to SB 3 that has the endorsement of House Majority Leader Dave Reed.

The House is expected to vote on SB 3 by the end of the year.
