State Senator Daylin Leach: “It is time for Pennsylvania to be a leader in jettisoning this modern-day prohibition” 

A state senator in Pennsylvania on Wednesday announced plans to introduce legislation that would legalize marijuana in Pennsylvania. State Senator Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery/Delaware) is currently looking for cosponsors for the bill.

“This past November, the people of Washington state and Colorado voted to fully legalize marijuana,” Sen. Leach said, reports The Sentinel. “Other places, including California, have had de facto legalization for some time.”
“This week, I will introduce legislation which would have Pennsylvania join these other states in ending this modern-day prohibition,” Leach said. “My bill will legalize the consumption of marijuana for adults over the age of 21, without regard to the purpose of that consumption.”

​It’s raining weed, man. Another unexpected five-pound delivery of marijuana has been left at the front door of an Upper Darby, Pennsylvania resident, according to police.

The package, shipped by the U.S. Postal Service, was left at a home on the first block of South Keystone Street, which — get this — is located directly behind the Upper Darby police station, reports the Delaware County News Network.
The resident, 27, reportedly told police she did not recognize the Arizona return address on the box, but she opened it anyway because she was expecting a delivery from Babies-R-Us. The woman immediately called police upon seeing the contents, according to reports.
“I was on my way home and I seen my mailman,” the woman said, reports Linda Reilly at the Delaware County Times. “The package was on the top step and my husband picked it up. I didn’t know the name on the box and was suspicious, but I was waiting for baby clothes I ordered from Babies-R-Us and opened it.”
