Lieutenant Governor Fetterman Statewide Cannabis Listening Tour Report July 2019

Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman recently completed a tour of every Pennsylvania county and with very few exceptions, found that a majority of Pennsylvanians approve of the legalization of Marijuana.

Executive Summary
On January 24, 2019, Governor Tom Wolf asked Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman to
launch an unbiased statewide listening tour to hear Pennsylvanians’ opinions – whether they
were in favor of, opposed to, or undecided – about legalizing adult-use retail cannabis.

Protocol: At least a week before each stop, Lieutenant Governor Fetterman personally called
every State Representative and State Senator to invite them to the stops in their respective
districts/counties. After each call, Fetterman’s office sent an email to the elected official to
provide full details about the stop. This uniform procedure was performed for each and every
tour stop.

The tour started on February 11, 2019 in Dauphin County and ended May 19, 2019 in
Philadelphia County. Over 98 days and 70 stops, Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman handed
the floor to residents from Greene to Wayne and from Erie to Philadelphia. The largest single county showing was in Lancaster, with more than 400 attendees. Philadelphia, the state’s most
populous county, had the lowest attendance, with a few dozen residents.
