In 2020, an average of 55 people were arrested every single day for ma*****na possession, according to state police data. That's more than 20,000 per year.
We can do better than spending state money to burden our residents with criminal records for doing something that most Pennsylvanians don't even think should be illegal.

Legalizing adult-use cannabis is:

🤑Fiscally responsible. We can save the millions of dollars we spend prosecuting our taxpayers every year and avoid the associated loss of productivity while generating billions in new revenue.

⚖️Criminal justice reform. Too many Pennsylvanians have criminal records for doing something most of us don't even think should be illegal.

🥰Humane. Legalizing will make life-saving medication less expensive and more accessible for medical ma*****na patients.

💡Common sense. Call your legislators and ask why they don't get started right now.

Women have had to fight for basic rights, including control over their own bodies.

Unfortunately the fight continues. Just yesterday, a federal judge blocked Texas’ latest attempt at an abortion ban.

I'll do everything in my power to ensure we don't go back on women’s rights.

Republican lawmakers jeopardizing YOUR personal information so they can continue battling the reality of an election they lost 10 months ago. And spending your money to do it.

Republican lawmakers in Pennsylvania on Wednesday approved subpoenas for a wide range of voter data as part of an investigation into the 2020 election in a state former president Donald Trump has repeatedly targeted with unfounded claims of fraud.

Legal W**d Means Higher House Values, Report Says

"The economic activity that pushes up house values comes in what the report describes as both 'predictable' and 'surprising' ways... The legal ma*****na industry supported 321,000 jobs as of early 2021. For comparison, that’s more than 1.5 times the number of practicing dentists in the U.S."

https://www.phillymag.com/property/2021/08/06/house-values-and-legal-ma*****na-report/

Go puff on this: A recent analysis of sales data found that house values increased $17,113 more over the last four years in states where recreational ma*****na is legal.

It has been 657 days since Governor Tom Wolf and I first called for the legislature to decriminalize ma*****na and create a path to legalization.
Tell your legislators it's time to act.

Might've said this before, but we *really* ought to legalize adult-use recreational ma*****na. How about now?

Last week, I signed legislation to enhance patient access to quality medical ma*****na.

I'm proud these COVID-19 disaster declaration measures are now permanent parts of Pennsylvania’s medical ma*****na program.

Now let's work together to make it legal for all Pennsylvanians.

Absolutely. This is not complex. The real reason we have a so called "labor shortage", is because our govt makes NOT working MORE attractive than working. With things like INVOLUNTARY UNEMPLOYMENT, which was made a permanent feature of our economy. Now, even in the very best economic times, America STILL has millions in the UNEMPLOYMENT line. And with starvation wages. And with tax policy. Why is UNEARNED income favored and taxed LESS, than earned income?? Why does F**A only apply to people making under like 200 grand a year?? (Not that F**A actually funds anything, it doesn't!). Our federal govt, both major parties, have been targeting the so called "natural" rate of UNEMPLOYMENT, now known as NAIRU. That literally means whenever unemployment falls below this contrived "natural" rate of unemployment, our govt takes policy action to CREATE MORE UNEMPLOYMENT, to "control inflation". Because keeping millions unemployed and poor, as a permanent feature of our economy, makes sure they can't spend demanding the good and services (supply) they need to live. Thus controlling inflationary pressures. It's sadistic on its face. But it's also counter productive. Because unemployment sees good work habits and job skills ATROPHY. So after our govt moves into a huge fiscal deficit position, to stimulate demand in our economy. Employers have to hire more people, to increase production and satisfy pent up DEMAND for their products and services. But employers Tell us they can't even find good workers, despite our govt keeping millions unemployed at all times. Because employers hate to hire the UNEMPLOYED for obvious reasons. So this results in production bottlenecks that limit SUPPLY at a time of increased aggregate DEMAND in our economy. So it's THIS status quo of fiscal austerity and involuntary UN-employment (our bipartisan trickle down status quo),which causes inflation problems!! NOT TOO MUCH GOVT SPENDING. LEARN ECONOMICS. #LearnMMT #AmericaOverOligarchy If our govt wanted more people to work they would offer living wage jobs and training, to anyone willing to work!! That would be done by using the FEDERALLY guaranteed living wage job program (true full employment). Because that would literally END the systemic abuse of INVOLUNTARY unemployment and STARVATION WAGES!! (two of the biggest barriers to people who want a good job. ) But instead our govt refuses to spend the dollars required to achieve true full employment with price stability. Smh. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1023519164886717&id=100016859292502
Understand the so called "Social security Trust funds" are simply an accounting record, THEY NEVER PAY OUT! When I get my SS check deposited into my bank account every month, it DOESN'T COME FROM SOME POT OF F**A TAX DOLLARS. Every SS payment comes from the same place my veterans benefits come from, the same place all federal spending originates, FROM OUR TREASURY DEBT!!!! When you pay F**A tax your bank account and net worth decrease, your banks reserves decrease as well. So when you pay F**A or any federal tax it decreases our Nations net MONEY supply. So those dollars no longer exist in circulation, they can only be used for accounting purposes after that. So when you pay F**A or any other federal tax, that's the DEATH of the dollar. Our govt don't recycle tax dollars at the federal level. So all federal spending, including Socal security, is brand new dollars created from thin air under law, every month. And because our govt has the sole power to create dollars, it can literally ALWAYS simply create new dollars to meet every financial obligation denominated in dollars, in perpetuity. So we can literally END ALL F**A TAX WITHHOLDING, and simultaneously our govt can also INCREASE SS benefits and expand the program indefinitely too. All that matters is our economy is productive enough to make all the goods and services available for future social security benefits (dollars) to demand and buy. #LearnMMT https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1009118582993442&id=100016859292502
I NEED AN INSTANT LOVE SPELL CASTER TO BRING BACK MY EX LOVER I want to appreciate Doctor Adogah for what he has done for me and my family. I was passing through terrible things. The problem started when my man return back from work and I discovered that his character has changed and few months after he said he is no more interested again in the relationship and I love my man, all my effort to bring my man back was aborted. I have concluded that my man can never come back to me again. But I saw people comments on net about Dr. Adogah. that he has helped them in various ways and then my hope of getting my man back increased and I contacted Dr Adogah about my issue and he said it is a small thing, I should relax my mind that within 48hours my man will by his self come home and after Dr Adogah has casted the spell,I saw my man from the window and I rush-out to meet him and he was crying that he never knew what came over him. I was very happy and I promise to tell people about great and powerful DOCTOR ADOGAH Spellcaster who has returned my joy back to me. I promise to share this testimony, you may also need his help, WhatsApp +2348069060309 Email: [email protected]

Mr. Lt. Governor, This came up in my memories section on Facebook. It happened two years ago today. At the time, I was months away from my 35th Birthday. I made a special “35 Bucket List,” dictating some awesome things I should do leading up to my 35th Birthday. Mr. Lt. Governor, getting a photo opp with you was one of the goals on my 35 Bucket List; this was one of two 35 Bucket List Goals I crossed off while I was in Harrisburg (the other being getting an inside tour of the Pennsylvania Governor’s Mansion). Anyway, thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to be in this photo opp with me, and good luck with your run for US Senator.
