For the two sessions in a row, Leach introduced medical marijuana bills in the Pennsylvania Senate, but neither of these bills received a vote, according to the Marijuana Policy Project. Sen. Leach was joined this past session by three other senators as co-sponsors – Larry Farnese (D-Philadelphia), Jim Ferlo (D-Allegheney/Westmoreland/Armstrong) and Wayne Fontana (D-Allegheney) – and, in December 2012, he was quoted as saying it is "inevitable" that Pennsylvania will eventually choose to allow the medicinal use of marijuana.
