Amendment Introduced for Recreational Use of Pot in Minnesota

Still Has a Long Ways to Go

ST. PAUL, Minn.-A Minnesota state representative from Virginia introduced a proposed amendment today to legalize recreational marijuana

Democrat Jason Metsa is hoping the amendment can reach a general election ballot in 2018. If passed, it would allow those older than 21 to buy or produce the drug.

Metsa does include terms for how sales would be taxed.

The measure still has a long ways to go as it still needs approval from the Minnesota House and Senate before reaching the ballot.
