Minnesota senate approves cannabis legalization bill, sending it to the governor

The Minnesota Senate has sent a bill to legalize cannabis to the governor’s desk to be signed into law.

Senators passed the legislation from Sen. Lindsey Port (D) and Rep. Zack Stephenson (D) in a 34-32 vote early on Saturday morning.

“The best way that we can protect our kids from access to cannabis is by legalizing and regulating. This is an adult-use cannabis bill, which will be sold in 21-plus locations, just like we sell alcohol,” Port said ahead of the vote.

“The system that we have right now is not working. It’s not achieving any of the goals we’re setting out for,” she said. “It is a public safety risk. It is a health risk. It is a risk to our children. It is not currently working. If we had a way to solve this with law enforcement, we would have done it.”
