PITTSBURGH – Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto is supporting the legalization of recreational marijuana. It would be a big step for Pittsburgh, and Pennsylvania, where medical marijuana is just taking off. Peduto has long been a supporter of legalizing medical marijuana, but this is the first time he’s endorsed its recreational use. He tweeted on Friday that he fully supports Auditor General Eugene Depasquale’s plan to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana in Pennsylvania. And more importantly, so do a majority of Pennsylvanians. Depasquale said taxing and regulating recreational marijuana would combat opioid addiction, claiming that opioid deaths have dropped 23 percent in states that allow it.
