Pro-pot Minnesota state Representative won’t carry NORML legalization measure


Minnesota state Rep. Rena Moran.

Yesterday, we told you that the Minnesota NORML, for the first time, plans to push legislation next session that would legalize marijuana in Minnesota. Marcus Harcus, the new associate director of MN NORML,says the organization is targeting pro-legalization Rep. Rena Moran (D-St. Paul) as the possible author of the bill in the House. Moran, you’ll recall, recently told a pro-medical marijuana rally, “Let’s create a system where we can tax and regulate the sale, so we can invest more wisely in all of us.”
But despite those comments, Moran said yesterday she won’t serve as the sponsor MN NORML is seeking next session. Minneapolis City Pages has the full story.
