A frivolous joke about a serious subject.
Rep. Mike Freiberg (DFL-Golden Valley) and a host of other DFL representatives introduced the cheekily named H.F. 420 bill to legalize recreational marijuana by 2022.
The bill’s title “celebrates” the cannabis culture’s April 20 holiday. But Senate Republicans say there is nothing to celebrate about mental illness, more traffic accidents, and other repercussions they believe will come from legalizing pot. Maybe not a good subject for a joke?
