Pennsylvania recently became the 24th U.S. state to legalize medical marijuana. Take a look at which states currently allow marijuana for recreational and/or medicinal purposes, compiled by the National Conference of State Legislatures.


An Allentown man called police to report a robbery and home invasion, but didn't expect to be arrested himself.

Police said 54-year-old Daniel Lyles called police around 3:15 a.m. Thursday to report the crime at his home at 426 Chestnut Street.

During the search, police said they found a substantial quantity of suspected marijuana in Lyles' bedroom closet, and more in the home that was packaged to sell in hundreds of small baggies.

Lyles was charged with possession with intent to deliver and drug paraphernalia,

He was taken to Lehigh County Prison after being unable to post $15,000 bail.
