Hawaii Senate Votes To Legalize Marijuana

It may die in the House of Representatives however

Hawaii state senators on Tuesday advanced a slight increase to the minimum wage and another measure that would legalize recreational cannabis for anyone 21 years and older.

While this is the first year a recreational pot measure has cleared a full floor vote, it appears dead on arrival in the House of Representatives. A key House chairman said he may not hear the measure.

The House meanwhile advanced measures allowing certain nurses to perform abortions after significant debate on the floor. Those bills are among hundreds that crossed over between the House and the Senate on Tuesday.

More stringent gun control laws also drew some attention during floor debates. And the new federal stimulus bill may spell death for certain tax credit proposals.
