A second Minnesota House committee approved a bill on Tuesday that would legalize marijuana in the state—through several other panels are expected to take up the legislation over the course of the next few weeks before it reaches the floor. House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler (D), Speaker Melissa Hortman (D), and other lawmakers filed the measure earlier this month. It would allow adults 21 and older to purchase and possess up to 1.5 ounces of cannabis and cultivate up to eight plants, four of which could be mature. The House Labor, Industry, Veterans, and Military Affairs Finance and Policy Committee passed the measure in a 7-5 vote. This comes one week after the Commerce Finance and Policy Committee advanced the legislation. It will next head to the Workforce and Business Development Finance and Policy Committee.
