Harrisburg, Dauphin Co. — State Representatives Aaron Kaufer (R) of the 120th District and Emily Kinkead (D) of the 20th District met Monday along with other lawmakers and stakeholders at a State Capitol news conference to discuss the first comprehensive, bipartisan adult-use cannabis bill.

The proposal would use data from other states in the U.S that have legalized marijuana to create a bill that prioritizes safety and justice reform.

“We can put that all together and make a bill that addresses social equity, brings in tax revenue, creates jobs, addresses the illicit market and creates a path to expungement for people who have been criminalized by something that were hopefully decriminalized,” Kinkead said.

The bill is still in its early stages and is in the process of being written, to eventually be presented to the House of Representatives.
