HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) — Governor Tom Wolf is set to sign the medical marijuana bill into law on Sunday. Proponents of the legislation are ready to see medical marijuana available to Pennsylvanians as a means to ease their ailments and the state capital will be celebrating the passage of the bill in a noticeable way.
On Sunday night, the front of the state Capitol will be lit green to celebrate the passage of the bill.
This is not the first time the building has donned green to celebrate a medical marijuana milestone. Governor Wolf shared a picture of the building when the bill passed the House.
Pennsylvania stands to be the nation’s 24th state to legalize medical marijuana.
The bill will give physicians the power to prescribe marijuana plant derived drugs to patients they believe have an eligible medical condition.
