DNC 2016: Sen. Leach: Medical marijuana will only go forward under Clinton presidency

PHILADELPHIA — Medical marijuana will only go forward if Hillary Clinton becomes president, according to Pennsylvania State Sen. Daylin Leach, proponent of the issue.

Leach said Tuesday that Donald Trump would never approve the use of medical marijuana, and referred to Trump’s reported plan to appoint New Jersey Gov. Chis Christie as U.S. Attorney General.

That suggestion brought a chorus of boos from the 200-plus people attending Tuesday’s breakfast meeting of the Pennsylvania Delegation.

Leach talked about a letter he received from a mother whose autistic son was prescribed medical marijuana and how much better he was doing with its use.
