The Minnesota House today is set to take a historic vote on a bill to legalize recreational marijuana. Leili Fatehi with Minnesotans for Responsible Marijuana Legislation says the vote is significant, but…

“I think the chances are very slim that it passes both chambers.”

The bill faces strong opposition from the Republican-controlled Senate, but Fatehi says next year it could be a different story…

“Come 2022 it is going to be an electoral issue.”

The bill to legalize passed through 12 House committees this session to get to today’s floor vote, and Fatahi expects the bill will pass in the House.
