Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero said she is in support of new legislation that promises to legalize adult use of marijuana and marijuana products.
Leon Guerrero and freshman Sen. Clynt Ridgell, the bill's author, met Friday morning to discuss the legislation, dubbed the "Guam Cannabis Industry Act of 2019."
The governor's position is not surprising. She has been supportive of fully legalizing marijuana and regulating its use similar to tobacco and alcohol.
Ridgell's Bill 32-35 will allow adults age 21 and older to personally cultivate, purchase and use cannabis and cannabis products on Guam.
The bill also would legalize commercial cultivation, manufacturing, and sales of cannabis and cannabis products for adult personal use.
