State Sens. Daylin Leach, D-Montgomery, and Larry Farnese, 
D-Philadelphia, have introduced legislation to permit the adult 
possession and retail sale of marijuana.

The measure permits adults to privately possess marijuana without 
penalty and to cultivate up to six plants - no more than three mature 
- - for non-commercial purposes. Not-for-profit transactions involving 
small quantities of marijuana would also be permitted.

Pittsburgh NORML supports this bill and is looking forward to 
hearings and the passage of this historic legislation in the 
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
