A Democratic challenger to Governor Tom Corbett says Pennsylvania should reform its marijuana laws.
 
John Hanger said medicinal marijuana should be permitted, and penalties for possessing small amounts of marijuana should be reduced to a summary offense similar to a traffic ticket by 2015.
 
He said Pennsylvania should regulate and tax marijuana use by 2017.
 
Hanger announced his plan during a news conference at the state Capitol.
 
He said Pennsylvania is spending $325 million a year prosecuting non-violent people for possessing marijuana, when regulating and taxing marijuana could bring the state at least $24 million a year.
 
Hanger was secretary of the state Department of Environmental Protection for three years under Governor Ed Rendell. He is among a field of Democrats seeking the gubernatorial nomination next year.
 
The other candidates are U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz, former Revenue secretary Tom Wolf, former DEP secretary Kathleen McGinty, Lebanon County commissioner Jo Ellen Litz, and Mechanicsburg minister Max Myers. State Treasurer Rob McCord is also exploring a bid.

Legalizing Marijuana May Help Save the US Economy

For his book "Too High to Fail," author Doug Fine took off to Mendocino, California, where growing marijuana is big business. A tolerant county sheriff sees pot as a source of much-needed revenue for his department and local government, even as the Obama administration sporadically swoops down on medical marijuana dispensaries.
 
Entering the gray zone of the green revolution in northern California, Fine documents an entrepreneurial spirit that represents a key feature of the stereotype of the American dream: risk and innovation in pursuit of monetary gain. Fine, however, repeatedly reminds us that these are investors with a mission: the full legalization of marijuana.
 
Given the passage of the recent statewide initiatives legalizing pot in Colorado and Washington State, Fine's exploration of the Mendocino model provides insight into what is very possibly in store for many states in America.
 
As Bill Maher noted of Fine's book, “Fine has written a well-researched book that uses the clever tactic of making the moral case for ending marijuana prohibition by burying it inside the economic case.”
