The bill is being fast-tracked
The Senate on Wednesday approved legislation that would prohibit commercial advertising for marijuana in Idaho, a move that could potentially stymie ballot initiatives to legalize the drug in the state.
The Senate voted 21-14 to send the bill to the House.
The bill is being fast-tracked, with a public hearing earlier in the day before a Senate panel that was held almost immediately after it was posted, giving the public little opportunity to participate.
