Minnesota measure would legalize marijuana by 2022


January 29, 2019

The debate over legalizing marijuana for recreational use reemerged at the Minnesota Capitol Monday, as supporters introduced legislation to move the state toward allowing possession and sale of the substance by 2022.

The issue is gaining traction nationwide, as support builds among some policymakers and voters.

Supporters say given those trends, the state must be proactive about how to thoughtfully allow and regulate recreational use.
