Present: Jessica Ashman, Shirley Fisher, Nolan Hartzell
Meeting Called to Order: 6:35 PM
A. Justin Hill
1. Decided to run for a position next election cycle.
B. Medical Marijuana
1. Local story in Reading Eagle about a girl with seizures.
2. Docotors recommend medical marijuana, but it is still illegal in the state of PA.
3. Tom Corbett already said he will veto any bill that asks to legalize the plant.
4. Until he is no longer governor, medical marijuana will not be legal in PA, and then after that, who knows how long it could be.
a. Meanwhile, he is continuing to cut funding for education!
b. You could TAX the plant to bring more money into the state!
5. Marijuana is less harmful than alcohol, tobacco, and some prescription drugs, yet, here we are.
C. Obama Care
1. Although all Americans deserve affordable healthcare, not sure if Obama Care is the best route.
2. Fining people and companies for not having health care is not constitutional, most of them can't afford it, that's why they don't have it.
3. Not fair for small businesses just getting by, or people with low incomes.
4. The economy needs to get straightened out first before we start making people buy healthcare.
Meeting adjourned: 6:50 PM
