HARRISBURG, February 8, 2013 – State Sen. Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery/Delaware) today announced plans to hold a marijuana legalization press conference on Monday, February 11 at 2 p.m. in the Capitol Media Center.

The press conference will feature representatives from the medical and law enforcement communities who support Leach’s bill and will give insight about the positive impacts the legislation would have. Speakers will include Neill Franlin, Executive Director, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition; and David Nathan, M.D., a clinical associate professor at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, who teaches and practices general adult psychiatry in Princeton, New Jersey.

Leach has been vocal about the benefits Pennsylvanians could reap by legalizing marijuana, most notably by bringing in much-needed tax revenue, providing a legal treatment alternative to patients suffering from terminal illness and finally ending a prohibition on a natural substance that causes no harm and cannot become the source of an addiction.
