HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The lieutenant governor is coming to our area to hear what people think of legalizing recreational marijuana in Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman is stopping in each county in the commonwealth to hear what the people have to say on the idea of legal cannabis.

The following dates have been scheduled for Clinton, Lackawanna, and Schuylkill counties:
