Lawmakers failed to act on legislation, Senate Bill 762, to permit for the personal possession and retail sale of marijuana by those age 21 and over.
The measure sought to permit adults the right to privately possess up to one ounce of cannabis without penalty. It also sought to license the commercial production and to regulate the retail sale of marijuana for adults.
A separate measure, HJR 57, that sought to put the issue of legalizing marijuana to a public vote was also never acted on this legisaltive session.
NORML would like to thank those of you who contacted your state lawmakers in support of this legislation.
