Pro-marijuana group wants to adopt highway; PennDOT says no thanks

Medical marijuana may be legal in Pennsylvania but that doesn’t mean you’ll be seeing the word “cannabis” on Adopt a Highway signs across the commonwealth.

PennDOT recently ruled that the Pennsylvania Cannabis Festival couldn’t adopt a stretch of road in Susquehanna County because the psychotropic drug is illegal.

“I think they’re just making up the rules as they go,” said Jeff Zick, who organized the festival last month at Scranton’s Nay Aug Park with the city’s permission.
