The Minnesota Senate is holding a vote on final approval of a marijuana legalization bill — one day after… House signed the legislation. Friday’s action is the last step before the reform is sent to the governor’s office to be signed into law.
The 320-page scale was from Representative Zack Stephenson (D) and Senator Lindsey Port (D) It was finalized at a bicameral conference committee meeting on Monday before they were sent back to the House and Senate, which have previously passed different versions of the bills, for reapproval.

After the Senate vote on Friday, the bill will head to the desk of Governor Tim Walz (D), who has already pledged to sign it into law and make Minnesota the 23rd state in the United States to end marijuana prohibition.
This is the final legislative step in a months-long process that involved dozens of committee hearings on the proposal before it could be considered.
Who is willing to legalize cannabis use for adults? Minnesota is ready. I am ready. The Senate is ready. Today is the desired day.
