Statewide Marijuana Listening Tour Stop Set for Allegheny County

Lt. Gov. John Fetterman will make two tour stops on Saturday, May 11

The date is set for the Pennsylvania Legalization Listening Tour stop in Allegheny County, and for the first time, there will be two stops, both on Saturday May 11.

The statewide tour is being conducted by Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman as a way of gauging public opinion on legalizing recreational marijuana in the state. Fetterman has promised to visit all 67 of the state's counties during his tour. He's visited 51 so far.

Here's the information for the Allegheny County stops, one of which will be in the City of Pittsburgh's Homewood neighborhood, and the other in the suburb of McKeesport:

Allegheny County/Central

1:00 - 2:30 p.m.
