In a dramatic turnaround, the House will vote on marijuana legalization after all, House Speaker Shap Smith (D-Morristown) said Friday.
The chamber will cast votes on the issue Monday, Smith said, probably on two different proposals. Whether either of them passes is still very much in question.
“People legitimately want to understand what level of support's out there,” Smith said Friday.
Smith said he expects at least two votes. One will be on a Senate bill that allows sale and possession of marijuana. The other is on a House Ways & Means Committee proposal to legalize home-growing of two marijuana plants.
