Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman will visit Westmoreland and Fayette Counties as part of his statewide marijuana listening tour. Fetterman has committed to visiting each of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties to get public input on the possibility of Pennsylvania legalizing recreational use of marijuana, also known as adult use.

In a news release announcing Fetterman’s listening tour, Gov. Tom Wolf said, “More and more states are successfully implementing marijuana legalization, especially those surrounding Pennsylvania, and we should learn from their efforts, and better understand the potential fiscal impacts of this reality before taking any collective action.”

The times and locations of next week’s events are below. Maitri encourages those who are able to attend and make your voice heard on this important issue. Those who cannot attend can submit feedback online at www.governor.pa.gov/recreational-marijuana-feedback/.
