As anticipated, State Sen. Daylin Leach (D-17), who represents parts of Montgomery County, has unveiled the full text of his controversial marijuana legalization bill, called the “Regulate Marijuana Act” — Senate Bill 528 in the current session of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, according to a Leach spokesperson.
The bill states that “in the interest of the efficient use of law enforcement resources, enhancing revenue for public purposes and individual freedom, the people of this Commonwealth find and declare that the use of marijuana should be legal for persons 21 years of age or older and taxed.”
Under the proposed legislation, it would no longer be illegal for a person age 21 or older to possess, grow, process or transport up to six marijuana plants (with three or fewer being mature, flowering plants) and possess the marijuana produced by those plants where they were grown, “provided that the growing takes place in an enclosed, locked space, is not conducted openly or publicly, and is not made available for sale. Additionally, the transfer of up to one ounce of marijuana, without remuneration, to those 21 or older would be permitted.
