Minnesota Marijuana Legalization Bill Approved In Another Senate Committee On Path To The Floor

A bill to legalize marijuana in Minnesota continues to advance, with another Senate committee approving the reform legislation on Monday.

The Senate Jobs and Economic Development Committee passed the bill from Sen. Lindsey Port (D) in a 5-3 vote. This marks the third Senate panel to advance the legislation in recent weeks, while a House companion version also continues to move.

“Prohibition of cannabis is a failed system that has not achieved the desired goals and has had incredible costs for our communities, especially for communities of color,” Port said at Monday’s hearing.

“We have an opportunity today to move forward in the process to undo some of the harm that has been done and to create a system of regulation that works for Minnesota consumers and businesses, while ensuring an opportunity in this new market for communities that have been most affected by prohibition,” she said. “Our main goals are to legalize, regulate and expunge, and we’re working to ensure this bill does just that.”

The chair of the committee said that the bill would come back to the panel for further consideration after a fiscal analysis is completed.
