What to look for on Smart Talk Thursday, January 3, 2019:

Governor Tom Wolf set off fireworks before the holidays with his response to a constituent's question during a twitter Q&A. The question was "when will Pennsylvania catch up and make recreational marijuana legal?"

Wolf responded in part that because more states are successfully implementing legalization that it is time for Pennsylvania to take a serious and honest look at legalizing, too.

It did not take long for proponents and opponents to legalization to step into the discussion. Democratic state Senator Daylin Leach of Delaware County weighed in with his intent to introduce legislation in the new year.

Senator Leach appears on Smart Talk Thursday, along with Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman representing the Pennsylvania District Attorney's Association, who oppose legalization.
