Lt. Gov. Fetterman on his 67-county cannabis tour: ‘A significant majority’ of Pennsylvanians support legalization

In just 98 days, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman visited all 67 of Pennsylvania’s counties to let residents talk at him about one thing: cannabis legalization.

He’s hoping to deliver a report on the tour to the governor and the public in the next month or two, but as he noted to the Capital-Star — he’s new to state government.

“I’m not sure if that’s naive or overly optimistic,” he said with a laugh Monday.

Fetterman doesn’t know exactly how many people showed up to the 70 events, but the number is certainly in the thousands. The largest crowd topped 400 in Lancaster, while the smallest crowds were in Philadelphia, where the tour ended with three stops Sunday.

The Democrat wasn’t that surprised.

“My theory is that in areas where there is kind of universal buy-in, it’s kind of like, ‘Let’s just do it,’” Fetterman said. “Whereas in areas where it’s more debatable, it’s not quite so uniformly supported, I think that’s where you would get the bigger crowds.”
