A state lawmaker is proposing to legalize marijuana for recreational use in Minnesota. DFL Representative Jon Applebaum of Minnetonka says he sees the bill resulting in a billion-dollar “Made in Minnesota” marijuana economy. The measure would regulate pot in a similar way to alcohol, with sale, possession and use only legal for people 21 and older. And the bill would allow possession up to one ounce at a time for personal use, with limits on smoking in public places. Eight states and Washington, DC have similar “legal marijuana” laws. Medicinal marijuana is currently legal for qualified patients in Minnesota. The bill faces an uphill battle in the Republican-led legislature.
