ST. PAUL, Minn. (KTTC) — Following a number of hours of debate Thursday, the Minnesota House handed HF600 on a 72-61 vote.
The vote got here somewhat after 11 p.m.
According to a tweet from the House, the omnibus cannabis invoice would legalize leisure marijuana for adults, create a regulatory oversight board, and expunge low-level legal cannabis convictions.
The invoice now strikes to the Minnesota Senate, the place it faces stiff opposition.
Currently, marijuana is simply authorized in Minnesota for medical functions. Since 1976, the drug has been decriminalized for possession or sale of lower than 42.5 grams. Per Minnesota state legislation, possession or sale of a bigger quantity ends in a felony cost.
