Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf says he supports decriminalizing cannabis, noting that there are “a lot of reasons” to do so.

“There are a lot of reasons to look at decriminalization”,  Governor Wolf said during an interview with WPXI-TV. “I think that’s something that I support.”

He continued; “I believe, for a number of reasons, that we ought to decriminalize marijuana use. I think our prisons are over-crowded as a result of people going to jail for reasons that, you know, we break up families for reasons that we shouldn’t”.
