House Rejects Marijuana Legalization Study

News
The state House has refused to authorize a study of legalization and taxation of marijuana in North Dakota.
 
House members heard brief arguments on the resolution that would have looked into the decriminalization and regulation of marijuana in the state.
A proponent said the state could have benefited from a study years ago when it was also turned down.
 
(Rep. Mary Schneider, (D) Fargo) “If we had undertaken that study we might have been more proactively prepared to deal with the issues arising from the recent initiated measure. This is a second chance to get it right. There was no opposition testimony and the committee urges a green, as in grass, vote.”
 
A green vote is a yes vote.
But not enough lawmakers agreed to vote green as the House said ‘no’ to the study by a vote of 50-40.
