On this Sunday’s broadcast — Pennsylvania became the 24th state to allow medical marijuana, after passage of a historic bill, with bi-partisan support from the General Assembly, which Governor Tom Wolf signed into law, last Sunday.
We’ll talk with one of the sponsors of that legislation – Rep. Joseph Petrarca (D) PA 17th Legislative District (Vandergrift) and Heather Shuker of Wexford, Pennsylvania – parent of a 13-year-old girl, who suffers from multiple, daily seizures, and whose condition is helped, through the use of medical marijuana – about what passage of this law means, to them, and to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
We’ll also discuss how this legislation will be implemented, and who is eligible to become part of the medical cannabis production and distribution system.
Then, BNY Mellon’s new Pittsburgh Innovation Center – which the financial giant considers to be a critical stop – between Silicon Valley and Wall Street. The Pittsburgh center hosts 1,300 local technology workers, and an overall, local workforce of more than 7,200 people.
