Minnesota House Democratic Majority Leader Ryan Winkler has outlined guiding principles for an adult-use cannabis legalization bill, according to a local KTOE report.
Winkler has previously announced plans to introduce legislation based on the “Be Heard on Cannabis” discussions he hosted around the state last year to gather public input on legalization.
While Gov. Tim Walz has been largely supportive of cannabis policy reform in the state, Senate Republican Majority Leader Paul Gazelka opposes legalization, KTOE reported.
Last year, a Senate committee rejected a legalization bill, and even shot down a proposal that would have established a task force to study the issue.
