Rep. Ed Osienski has pushed for years to legalize and regulate cannabis for adult use. After a vote in the Senate on Tuesday, both legislative chambers have for the first time said “yes.”
A bill advanced on Tuesday would tax and regulate cannabis, if legal. Another simple legalization bill will get a hearing this week.
The House was set to vote on an adult use bill Thursday, but its sponsor cancelled the vote to “consider the implications” of “various amendments.”
