2019 Enacted Legislation

Governor Wolf’s administration oversaw efforts to create an expedited review process for pardoning those with past, low-level marijuana-related convictions. "These efforts to move more Pennsylvanians through the pardons process is part of a larger effort to do all that we can do to give people a fair second chance." (Link)

2019 Vetoed Legislation



Governor Wolf’s position with regard to cannabis legalization has evolved in recent years. In 2019, for the first time, the Governor expressed support for regulating adult-use cannabis activities.
"I think it’s time for the General Assembly to sit down and craft a bill that actually recognizes that Pennsylvania is ready for [legalizing marijuana], and also takes advantage of what we’ve learned from other states in terms of what to do and what not to do." (Link)
