Daylin Leach, who represents Plymouth and Conshohocken, drafted a proposal to legalize marijuana for recreational use.
Pennsylvania Senator Daylin Leach (D-17) drafted a proposal to legalize the recreational use of marijuana for those 21 and older, according to PoliticsPA. “Prohibition is a cruel irrational policy which is destroying lives, costing us billions of dollars and is doing no good whatsoever,” Leach said. The bill is in its early stages, waiting for co-sponsors and to be referred to an appropriate committee. Leach believes his legislation would receive bi-partisan support because it could save roughly $325 million in “criminal justice costs,” and it would add privacy for citizens. State Rep. Mark Cohen (D-202) previously proposed legislation to legalize the use of medical marijuana, and will re-introduce it again this session. Cohen supports …

Thursday, October 18, 2012
A Brad Fox Law is headed for Gov. Tom Corbett's desk, though it's perhaps not the one some gun control advocates might hope for. House Bill 898, which imposes a mandatory minimum five-year sentence for the second and subsequent violations of the provisions of state law governing the sale of firearms, was unanimously passed by the state Senate on Wednesday. The law also permanently revokes any license to sell, import, or manufacture firearms from such violators. The bill, now known as the "Brad Fox Law," was passed by the state House in April 2011. State Representative Marcy Toepel (R-147), who introduced the bill, said it had taken on "new significance" in the wake of Fox's murder last month. Fox's apparent killer, Andrew Thomas, who was …
