House of the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands passes marijuana legalization bill

But don't get to excited, it's not legal there yet. A bill to legalize marijuana passed the house in the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands (CNMI), a US territory, November 4th. The Governor vows to veto it and the Senate doesn't look likely to pass it through.

Rep. Stanley Torres' (Ind-Saipan) House Bill 17-45 passed on a 10-7 vote with one abstention from Rep. Ray Basa (Cov-Saipan).
