A top Minnesota lawmaker says a bill to legalize marijuana that has already cleared four House committees will receive a floor vote in the chamber next month. House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler (D), the sponsor of the reform legislation, said it will move through its remaining committee stops by the end of April, setting the stage for action in the full chamber in May. “Minnesotans are ready for cannabis, and we will keep pushing until it gets done,” Winkler told Fox 9. Winkler, Speaker Melissa Hortman (D), and other lawmakers filed the measure in February. It would allow adults 21 and older to purchase and possess up to 1.5 ounces of marijuana and cultivate up to eight plants, four of which could be mature.
