This guy is an uneducated idiot. If he would take the time to do the research, look at the 100's and 100's of cases that marijuana has proven that it shrinks tumors, helps stop epilepsy......and as far as him saying that is decision is not based on his interest in big pharma....why did he even brings it up, and does he even know that marijuana is already out in pill form...called Marinal...I am sure he has gotten kick backs from that drug and is too mindless to even notice. Has he not bothered to google WHO owns the patent on medical marijuana....??? Our own goverment does !!! This guy need to open his mind and get his hands out of big pharama's pockets !!!

So the State of PA which is deeply involved in the retail liquor business which from a medical perspective, no one can deny is unhealthy. They also make money off the sale of tobacco which again, proven to be unhealthy. But now on the legalization of marijuana they suddenly become overly righteous. WTF?

GOOD JOB! Can't thank you enough for ignoring these idiots that think their dopestick will cure everything. Phaque if you don't subscribe to this.

Just a simple wiki search, "Baker has taken tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from pharmaceutical companies, in reward for his opposition to medical marijuana." Imagine what a FoIA request would reveal about the pockets this "rep," resides in...

Putting the issue aside, this is why politics is nothing but a dog and pony show for the working class people. One Schlep stopping the will of the people!?

If it was 'the will of the people,' this corporate tool would be facing hard time for the fraud of 'representing.' ... many would, and should..

...rant over...

That is all.

9:59 let's try to keep this conversation at an adult level. What facts are you basing your opinion of MEDICAL marijuana on? Just wondering since medical marijuana can be produced in an oil form that isn't smoked, it is ingested and contains only trace amounts of THC so it's impossible to get "high" from. This is the same product given to children in many other States to control seizures.

Just another statist politician that wants to control what people do.

10:12 So true. He denies having these conversations with the Pharm. companies but they aren't financially backing because of his lack of support on their behalf.

What a douchebag, hey why don't you fix your tupay and do what the majority of PA wants instead of Big Pharma! It will all be ok though if everyone just takes another oxycontin. Which is the same exact thing except stronger than heroin off the street!

This proves that politicians are smarter than doctors. I knew that going to med school would be a waste of time.

if you people who want to smoke this stuff would put down your bongs and stop and think about it for a minute this might make more sense. Without government control, it is cheaper for you to buy a bag of pot now and use it as you will. If they were to legalize it, they have full control over what levels of THC the stuff contains, where it can be grown, how it is distributed, and how much to charge for it on the store shelf after you get a prescription. Do you really want the PA government to control this the way that they do with alcohol now?

Typical repub-tard.. sad money comes before the lives of children

Hey Smokin Joe, First of all the legislation is about medical use of marijuana not recreation use. Secondly, talk a quick plane trip out to Colorado and see how it is working for recreational use, doesn't seem to be any problems, appears to be a win/win for everybody.

Mr.Baker you're either stupid, very misinformed or a liar, or perhaps all three. You make me embarrassed to be a republican. Not only should we legislate medical marijuana use but also recreational. This State is dying and it is because of backwards thinking, pocket lining politicians like you. By the way what are you moralistic thoughts on the State you help run making money selling alcohol? How healthy is that? Making tax money off tobacco sales, another documented health issue. You are a HYPOCRITE

It's amazing how these dem-crooks loved it when harry treasoner wouldn't put bills through the senate when the house passed them, he was a here, looking out for the people! Now Matt does the same thing and those same people think he's ignoring the people?!?! You people shouldn't be allowed to vote. Thank you Matt for standing up for what's right until more research is done. Oh,and also for being the "only" politician in the world to be supported by an organization. (that's sarcasm for you democrats that don't understand.)

I was a doubter about weed, too. But after watching and with an open mind found out different ideas and cures have come to the conclusion that medical marijuana is a merical drug that can help the hopeless and ease their pain and suffering. Please reconsider your possition on this matter as it is the wave of the future.

3:49 he's not looking after the people.. the people are screaming and beating down the doors for this. Their children are suffering! He is looking out for one person and that's him and his pockets.. no more research needs to be done, the verdicts been in.. if you don't like freedom then please feel free to leave.. there is not one legitimate reason for Marijuana to be illegal
