gaineyAt a medical cannabis rally in the state capitol, State Representative Ed Gainey from Pittsburgh, Pa., gave one of the best speeches in support of medical marijuana.

Before the previous session ended, the senate passed Senate Bill 3 by a 43-7 margin, but it did not make it out of the House because of the myths that marijuana is a gateway drug.  Ed Gainey wants to call a “lie a lie” and make this bill a law.

More reporting from today’s events will be posted later on tonight.
