    If they don’t vote for it then it is time to vote them out.

    So if I were to be on probation and the bill does pass through the Senate and Biden, thus eliminating any criminal convictions, would I be immediately exonerated of my term on probation?

    Thirteen men died after going to the Allegheny County Jail. Here are their stories
    The state tried to do the same to me over petty marijuana charges where nobody could hear me scream in their prison but they failed. The state covers this up while pushing mmj cards.

    Oil industry is against hemp industry replacing their sales

  5. Heaven 42# on May 15, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    If it don’t pass you know America’s fake !A_s,I don’t have to tell you Again ?

    “The biggest killer on the planet is stress, and I still think the best medicine is and always has been cannabis.”

  7. Gary Pavlick on May 15, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    All right!! I guess POT growers haven’t ever heard of prohabition! Nah! Probably too high. TOO bad for them. Maybe, they should have grown food inside. But, I’m not go into the prohabition law’s for any one who’s wasted their talent to get high! Let them learn the high way. Can’t be protected once that law passes. So, pot growers if you ain’t too high.look it up!

  8. Howard Stern on May 15, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    And Right Wingers are supposed to be for small Government

  9. Sheps on May 15, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Democrats support legalization 49 percent to 28 percent, Republicans oppose 32 percent to 50 percent AGAINST!

  10. FACEHUNTER504 DAT on May 15, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    The taxes they put on legal pot is INSANE!!! When I went to Cali I spent almost just as much as I was taxed, it was crazy crazy high! Tax it but make it affordable so the black market isn’t thriving like it is now.

  11. steven on May 15, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    I say wait till mid terms get closer and then push the vote in the senate.

  12. Joseph Joseph on May 15, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    The governor here kills 3,500 people in nursing homes during the pandemic, no arrest is made yet. Two months ago a 51 year old man gets sentenced to five years in prison for growing 100 pot plants. The local media covers this up. In 2018 they killed a man with a bulldozer over 10 plants. The state loves to abuse and oppress the poor while awarding the rich for the same thing.

  13. Aaron R. on May 15, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    I hate biden with all my heart, but if he legalized weed id vote for him lollllllllllllll

  14. Mountain Bike Addict on May 15, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    "The pursuit of happiness" is in the constitution. The constitution was written on hemp paper.
    If smoking cannabis makes you happy you are obeying the constitution.
    If you don’t like the constitution get out of my country.

  15. Austin Butler on May 15, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    I can’t wait until weed League.

  16. DOC HOLLIDAY.45 on May 15, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    Yet alcohol is giving how many lives it has taken. Its a joke

  17. maintenance zone on May 15, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    They know that we will find out we don’t need this form of representation any more lawyers are you kidding me

  18. Josh Burns on May 15, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    What’s the point of keeping it illegal??? People are still doing it.

  19. DazRight on May 15, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    It’s usually the old people who don’t want it legal well cause they old an don’t like nun💀

  20. Kai daKemes on May 15, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    The want to still lock blk people up das all.

  21. hugokatz on May 15, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    Stop the insanity. The drug war has criminalized our citizens and police. Legalization of cannabis would help stop the bleeding within our criminal justice and policing.

  22. Terry on May 15, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Make it Illegal to do street racing

  23. Anita Gary on May 15, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Please legalize marijuana in Savannah Tennessee in the surrounding areas

  24. Joseph Joseph on May 15, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    There is only three people in recorded world history to be run over by a tank by its own heinous totalitarian gov’t and PA has made the list: China: Tiananmen square 1989, Isreal: Rachel Corrie 2003 and Pennsylvania: Greg Longenecker 2018. They’re so proud of this and their medical marijuana stores.

  25. Jason Johnson on May 15, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Interesting they say they need more background research on marijuana! Complete bullshit! Here’s your research zero deaths! Meanwhile big farma gets dangerous drugs threw in 3 months and it has a list of dangers and many deaths! Percocet!

  26. UNDERHILL on May 15, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    "impacted negatively by the war on drugs" so we’re going after shithead cops and prisons now right?

  27. Mountain Bike Addict on May 15, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Are these Republicans really crying about the children? Hey goofballs, you can’t buy cannabis if you’re under 21 years old.
    You CAN buy tobacco at 18 which kills you and pollutes fresh air around other people causing second and third hand smoke damage.

  28. Dotty Wotson on May 15, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Sounds like the Senate needs to be reformed

  29. Heaven 42# on May 15, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    If you want change boycott fluoride in America’s Water.Killing everybody ,Mind Soul
    And Body, But what do I Know
    Better yet what do you know

  30. Aaron R. on May 15, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    screw the law been growin 15 years!!! everyone should just grow their own!! now days you can buy autoflowering seeds that are guaranteed female and only require 7-9 weeks start to finish!

  31. Arthur Smith on May 15, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    No reason all drugs shouldn’t be legal. It’s nobody’s business if someone likes to do heroin cocaine marijuana or any other drug. Ain’t nobody’s business but your own.

  32. Pidner . on May 15, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Legal or not I’m about to smoke a bowl.

  33. George W Bush Center for Intelligence on May 15, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Pharma lobbys will do everything they can to fight this . Pretty sure some senators will get a few millions transfered to there cayman island offshore accounts . Alcohol kills 3 million people a year in one way or another . Keeping weed illegal puts people in prison and excludes many decent people from working at jobs .

  34. Rodney Daub on May 15, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    I have PTSD and have used cannabis all of my life. I have a state MMJ card and the tax is way too high, it’s ridiculous, so I went back to buying it off the street

    I cannot afford to do anything else

  35. Art Sawyer on May 15, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    So all the crooked ass senators must almost have their back door deals and stocks buys done ,,,and when they are they will make it legal ,not until ,, you know they got to get theirs

  36. Jonah on May 15, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Once those nukes hit, you’ll all run around like chickenshits, weed stores will be the least all of your worries.

  37. Evans Sooklal on May 15, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    America is going down the tube of brokenness, sorrow and death… mainly because most of the Democrats have rejected righteousness and truth.

  38. FACEHUNTER504 DAT on May 15, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    It’s these tobacco and pharmaceutical companies that are slipping these crooked politicians money to not pass these bills. Ridiculous that we can’t get the help that is needed without breaking the law.

  39. Opprogram on May 15, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    I hope my fellow libertarians do not support the Republicans against this if makes no sense.

  40. Joy Winfree on May 15, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    We’re old with arthritis

  41. Oneeyed Jack on May 15, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    Marijuana should NEVER have been illegal in the first place. It has all been a pack of lies ever sense the 30’s. They have always known it has medical uses.

  42. Brad Giles on May 15, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    My god this could change American in the best way of all it’s history!

  43. Eros ego on May 15, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    if pharmaceutical companies keep it illegal for profit again this time I’m never taking another pharmaceutical again after may 1st, feels like the only thing i can do at this point

  44. JB on May 15, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Every single politician that votes against legalization should be thrown out of office ASAP.

  45. Coty on May 15, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Wow democrats fucked us again

  46. LEGENDARY ANT on May 15, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    420 would be about that day for legislation

  47. Joe Smartballs on May 15, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Marijuana/Marijuano is not even a plant. Marijuana is a spanish word meaning pothead, someone who is high. Molta is spanish for cannabis. All US marijuana laws are automatically Nule and Void for not defining the plant in english. English common law requires all US laws written in the english language. Marijuana, and cannabis are not english words. So their laws are VOID. Everything they’re saying is bullshit.

  48. Stacy Fuller on May 15, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Who ever votes to block this bill . Their names need to be put on the front page of all news papers. SO WE CAN VOTE THEM OUT

  49. KING FISH / PHILL on May 15, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    ( FREE TEXAS ✌ )

  50. KING FISH / PHILL on May 15, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Texas shure could use tax revenues from cannibus legalization ✌
