Connecticut House OKs Medical Marijuana Bill

The state moves closer to allowing medical marijuana.

The Connecticut House of Representatives approved a bill legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes. According to the Associated Press, the vote passed 95-51 after a seven-hour debate.  

Now the bill has to pass the Senate. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has said he’ll sign the bill into law.

A Quinnipiac Poll conducted in March shows support legalizing medical marijuana. More voters supported medical marijuana than allowing alcohol sales on Sunday.

Of course our tax happy gov will sign the legislation, he has a vested interest as his son was involved in the industry a few years ago if my memory serves me.
