Saipan Lawmaker Introduces Recreational Marijuana Bill

U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) Representative Stanley Torres wants weed

Rep. Stanley Torres (Ind-Saipan) introduced on the House floor yesterday a bill seeking to legalize marijuana use in the CNMI for medical and recreational use, barely four months since the Senate killed his previous proposal of the same nature. “The legalization, regulation, and taxation of cannabis in the Commonwealth will be the best marijuana law in America,” Torres said in a privilege speech at the House session. Torres said he “candidly admit[s]” that his primary reason for introducing the bill is to tax and regulate marijuana transactions in the CNMI, which is in dire financial need. Other House members said they are either still opposed to a marijuana bill or haven’t fully read Torres’ new bill.
