The Mississippi Senate met on Thursday and approved the legalization of medical marijuana, 47-5.
Governor Tate Reeves has been an obstacle in the pursuit to legalize the medicinal use of marijuana, a measure which nearly 3/4 of the state voted in favor of before the Supreme Court struck down the ballot measure.
Reeves has previously threatened to veto the bill over it’s purchase limit proposals. However, lawmakers feel confident they will have the support to override any veto.
It has been an uphill battle for those who voted and supported the medical marijuana movement. The end of that struggle may finally be in sight.
