Marijuana Legalization Bill Still Being Considered
(St. Paul, MN) — A proposal to legalize recreational marijuana in Minnesota is still alive at the State Capitol. If approved, the bill would also expunge low-level drug convictions. It wouldn’t erase the convictions, but it would hide them from public view, including background checks for jobs and housing. More than 60-thousand marijuana convictions would be expunged if the bill being considered is signed into law. The proposal does not include violent drug-related crimes.
