Keystone Cannabis Reform - Pennsylvanians United for Compassionate Cannabis Reform
Keystone Cannabis Reform is a new way to continue our progress and momentum on cannabis and hemp reform in Pennsylvania in 2014.
We are very close to passing landmark legislation for medical cannabis in Pennsylvania, Senate Bill 1182. It may be possible pass it this year and FORCE Corbett to sign it. Or, it may pass very shortly after the next governor takes office in January of next year. The battle is on RIGHT NOW, not some time in the distant future. Many people do not realize just how close we are.
Keystone Cannabis Reform believes in immediate passage of compassionate use of medical cannabis legislation in Pennsylvania. We support the farmer's right to grow industrial hemp and we support a fully legal market for cannabis in Pennsylvania and our nation.
We did a lot in 2013. We organized the Lancaster Hemp Rally, Lancaster Hemp Freedom Rally, York Hemp Freedom Rally, Reading Hemp Freedom Rally and the Lancaster Hemp Harvest Rally. Then there were ten rallies attended and spoken at in Philadelphia. Plus rallies, press conferences and hearing in Harrisburg. Panel discussions in Harrisburg and West Chester University, the Mid-Atlantic NORML Conference in Philly and much more.
Our work was made possible by the generous support of donors and actiivists. The work we did and what we achieved was remarkable. We kept media attention on the issue all year round and were able to help catapult this issue into the highest realms of political consideration.
We had a candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania take up our cause, John Hanger and the support he gained caused ALL of the major Democratic candidates for governor to support medical cannabis and decriminalization. Hanger had actually boldly proposed full legalization of cannabis!
For Keystone Cannabis Reform to become a reality money must be raised to continue this important work. We will rally in Harrisburg, Lancaster, Reading, York, Philadelphia and elsewhere, working with other individuals and groups who are also doing good and important work around the state.
Thank you for your support. Without the funding of good people such as yourselves, our work would fail and come to nothing. Thank you for your donations and for helping to advance OUR cause. We will never stop fighting until we achieve VICTORY!
