PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) – Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania John Fetterman thinks recreational marijuana could help assist the state’s lost revenue from the pandemic.

“Think about this idea of a three and a half billion dollar deficit - where is the money going to come from?” Fetterman said on Tuesday during the KDKA Radio Morning Show. “Nobody wants to raise taxes; nobody wants to cut services.”

Fetterman said it could generate billions of dollars in long-term revenue, while creating a number of jobs across the commonwealth.

“An overwhelming majority of Pennsylvanian's want this. They want this,” Fetterman adds.
