Connecticut Senate Has Passed Legalizing Marijuana
At the start of the week, the Senate In Connecticut approved a piece of legislation to legalize marijuana. Now the next step of the process is sending the bill off for the last phase of voting which will be done by the House. This last approval comes just days left in the legislative session.
Those who the heads of the House have mentioned they plan to take up the legislation in that chamber before Wednesday’s end-of-session deadline Yet it will be sorted following working out matters concerning the state budget.
This cannabis bill is the result of much work from weeks of discussions between congressional leaders and the office of Gov. Ned Lamont. The final language was submitted this past weekend. This did not leave, legislators with enough time to examine the language of the bill. However, in the middle of a marathon floor discussion that happened Tuesday morning, the Senate approved the bill in a victorious 19–17 vote.
