1233013 A bill was introduced in the Pennsylvania legislature that allows for the limited use of medical weed, but not necessarily because politicians are concerned about the health benefits, it’s the money: “sales taxes and other fees charged for dispensing medical marijuana would increase state revenues by at least $25 million a year,” noted Rep. Mark Cohen (D-Phila.), sponsor of the bill. |KYW|
