A third Minnesota House committee has approved a bill to legalize marijuana in the state—but even more, panels are expected to take up the legislation before it reaches the floor. House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler (D), Speaker Melissa Hortman (D), and other lawmakers filed the measure last 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. On Wednesday, the House Workforce and Business Development Finance and Policy Committee advanced the legislation in a 10-2 vote, with one abstention. It’s already been approved by the Labor, Industry, Veterans, and Military Affairs Finance and Policy Committee and the Commerce Finance and Policy Committee as well.
