Governor Wolf Statement on Leader Reed’s Decision to Hold Vote on Medical Marijuana Bill

first_img Medical Marijuana,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Governor Wolf released the following statement regarding House Majority Leader Dave Reed’s decision to hold a vote on legislation that would legalize medical marijuana in Pennsylvania:“I want to thank Majority Leader Dave Reed for addressing medical marijuana in the House of Representatives so we can finally provide much needed relief to families and children. As I have said for years, I support the legalization of medical marijuana and I believe it is long past time to provide this important medical relief to patients and families across the commonwealth. I have met with patients and families, held roundtables, and urged action on this legislation since taking office. Additionally, my administration pushed forward with a program to expand research into the use of Cannabidiol for the treatment of children with intractable seizures. It is time to legalize medical marijuana because we should not deny doctor-recommended treatment that could help people suffering from seizures or cancer patients affected by chemotherapy. I urge quick action by the legislature to legalize medical marijuana.”# # #Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf SHARE Email Facebook Twitter February 25, 2016center_img Governor Wolf Statement on Leader Reed’s Decision to Hold Vote on Medical Marijuana Billlast_img read more

Mata hoping for Mourinho return

first_imgSpanish playmaker Juan Mata would be thrilled to see Jose Mourinho return to Chelsea. The Portuguese boss will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season and is widely expected to return to Stamford Bridge for a second spell as Chelsea boss. “Jose is one of the best,” World Cup and Euro 2012 winner Mata told reporters on Chelsea’s United States post-season tour. “He won everything in every country he was – in Portugal, in Italy, in Chelsea in London. We don’t know really what is going to happen but if he comes he is welcome because he is one of the best and Chelsea always want to be a top side.” Mata added: “If he comes we are going to be happy to have him.” Mourinho led Chelsea to two Barclays Premier League titles during his first spell in charge, from July 2004 to September 2007, including the Blues’ first championship in 50 years. Mata has won the Champions League, FA Cup and Europa League with Chelsea, but is keen to win the domestic title. Mata added: “If he comes we will try and do our best with him, or whoever, to win the title, because one challenge for me will be to win the Premier League.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
