MN Lawmakers: Legalize Pot For Recreational Use -Full News Conference

YouTube ~ Michael McIntee

Published on Feb 10, 2017

Minnesota has legalized some forms of medical marijuana. But now there’s a move to legalize it for recreational use as well. Several DFL lawmakers are proposing a law to do that. They’re also proposing a state constitutional amendment to make pot legal. Speakers include Bill authors Rep. Jason Metsa (DFL – Virginia) and Rep. Tina Liebling (DFL – Rochester) .

The bill is opposed by at least one key Republican— the GOP controls the legislature — and Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton opposes it.

If the legislature passes the constitutional amendment, it will go directly to the voters with or without Dayton’s signature.

Applebaum says realizes the bill isn’t likely to pass this session, but says it is a conversation starter about something that eventually has to change.
