Forum Held At UPenn Over Legalizing Marijuana

Posted: Updated:
UNIVERSITY CITY -

The legalization of marijuana in Pennsylvania , was a heated topic in University City on Friday.

The forum at UPenn's School of Law comes as the state general assembly is moving forward on legislation to legalize medical marijuana.

State Senator Anthony Williams hosted the event, and says there are benefits to cannabis legalization.

Advocates say taxing medical marijuana could help the state increase its investments in education and impact the state's pension problem.

It could also provide a multi-million dollar recurring revenue source that the state could tap into for years to come.
