Reynoldsville, PA – Another stop on the statewide marijuana listening tour is coming to our area.

Lt. Governor John Fetterman will be stopping at the Foundry in Reynoldsville on Saturday, April 13 from 2:30 until 4 p.m.

These events are open to the public, and the goal is to learn how Pennsylvanians feel about the possibility of legalizing recreational marijuana.

In February, Penn State DuBois was one of the first stops on the planned tour of all 67 counties.

While medical marijuana has been legal in Pennsylvania since 2016, this listening tour focuses on the possibility of Pennsylvanians using marijuana recreationally, as has been done in 10 states.

If you are not able to make it to the listening tour in person, you can also submit your online feedback with how you feel about recreational marijuana at the PA Governor’s website.

See all of the upcoming listening tour stops at Fetterman’s Facebook page.

Curious how the marijuana listening tour at Penn State DuBois on Feb. 21, 2019, turned out?

People from both sides of the issue spoke, and the night was generally civil.

Listen to the personal interview with John Fetterman the night of the event.

At the end of the night when a tally was taken, the majority of people were in favor of legalization. Many of those who came up to the mics to give their opinions were quick to talk about the economic benefits and share their own personal experiences.

Those who were against legalizing recreational marijuana talked about the potential that it could lead to other drugs or might not be as financially lucrative as what many people assume it would be.

On both sides, most people said they were concerned about how it could affect the number of people who would be driving under the influence of marijuana, and how police might not even be able to effectively test for it.

See what people said at the listening session at Penn State DuBois on Feb. 21. The first video shows the first 22 minutes, then cuts off. The second video rejoins for the rest.
