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.
