Bill To Tax And Regulate Marijuana Introduced In Pennsylvania


pennsylvania sb 528 tax regulate marijuana legalizationPennsylvania recently joined the growing list of states considering taxing and regulating marijuana like alcohol this year, when Sen. Daylin Leach (D-17) introduced SB 528. The proposal was referred to the Senate Law and Justice Committee on April 3.

Sen. Leach’s bill, the Regulate Marijuana Act, would allow adults 21 and over to possess, grow, process, or transport up to six marijuana plants (three or fewer being mature) and possess the marijuana produced by those plants where they were grown, provided that the growing takes place in a secure location. In addition, adults would be allowed to give away up to one ounce of marijuana to other adults who are 21 or older.

SB 528 would task the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board with licensing marijuana-related facilities and regulating the cultivation, distribution, and sale of marijuana to adults 21 and over. In terms of taxation, the bill calls on the General Assembly to enact an excise tax on marijuana sold or transferred.

If you are a Pennsylvania resident, please contact your legislators now, and ask them to support taxing and regulating marijuana in a manner similar to alcohol.

  1. We Pennsylvanians must tell our legislators how we feel about this. The website makes it easy to do.
    Let’s get this done while there is momentum. Enough support will make this happen.

  2. I hope everyone in Pa who really cares about this to start contacting the legislators. I have already done this and so should we. Dont let gov. corbett scare you with his veto bullcrap. He wont be in office next term with the horrible things he has done to Pennsylvanians
