Pa. senator: Colo. trip included using legal weed



Published: Fri, August 1, 2014 @ 2:10 p.m.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania state senator says he tried some marijuana on his taxpayer-funded trip to Colorado to see how the state’s marijuana industry is working.

Democratic Sen. Daylin Leach said today he took two hits from a vape pen, similar to an e-cigarette, at his hotel. He says it was the first time he had used marijuana in about 25 years.

A vape pen vaporizes a form of marijuana and is smokeless. He says it was a gift from a facility he and aides toured during the official trip, which cost nearly $5,000.

He says the legal weed caused him to giggle a bit through dinner.

Afterward, he says he did something unusual — he watched a romantic comedy on TV.

Leach is a leading proponent of legalizing marijuana in Pennsylvania.

"the official trip, which cost nearly $5,000."

Life is good on the taxpayers dime. The productivity of those stoned on pot is next to nothing.

Every member of Congress must be on pot then.
