HARTFORD: Even as a mayor who wants to be Governor calls on the state to “oversee” a dysfunctional government, the Hartford Court of Common Council voted unanimously in favor of a resolution to make Marijuana legal in the state.
The council is asking Hartord’s legislation delegation to support legalization and presumably to tax Marijuana sales.
The group also wants to make sure that minorities are not iced out of the industry demanding that the legislators “ensure racial equity in ownership and employment,” in the industry.
Hartford City Councilwoman Wildaliz Bermudez, who sponsored the resolution said, “by passing this resolution, we put ourselves in a position to ensure the implementation of marijuana regulation is grounded in racial and economic justice.”
Currently pot smokers are not breaking state laws in eight states, including nieghobring Massachusetts.
