Scranton Medical Marijuana Attorney
Is Medical Marijuana Legal in Pennsylvania?
As of 2009, Pennsylvania has not legalized medical marijuana. However, many people have been gathering in an attempt to have a bill signed by the legislative to legalize the use of medical marijuana. Research has shown that marijuana is said to help ease the pain of individuals suffering from terminal illnesses and diseases such as HIV/Aids, cancer and multiple sclerosis (MS). Currently, the only way for people in North Pennsylvania to obtain medical marijuana is to move to a state that has made medical marijuana legal, or buy from criminals.
Possible Consequences of Medical Marijuana
Sadly, many people who use medical marijuana are deemed to be criminals by law enforcement. This paves the way for many ill individuals to be placed under arrest for under the influence and possession charges.
This would mean that depending upon the amount of marijuana a person has in their possession, they can face:
- Long term jail or prison sentence
- Community service
- License suspension
- Permanent mark on their criminal record
