(St. Cloud, MN) -- House Democrats are hosting a town hall meeting in St. Cloud today to discuss the legalization of recreational marijuana in Minnesota (Saturday). Representative Dan Wolgamott of St. Cloud says 11 states have already legalized cannabis and it's only a matter of time until it happens here. He says legalizing it will help veterans get the care they need and allow law enforcement to focus more resources on more serious crimes. Governor Tim Walz supports the push to legalize recreational marijuana. But Senate Republican Leader Paul Gazelka says it won't happen next year. Today's meeting is from 1:30 to 3:30 p-m in the St. Cloud Public Library.
