SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Louisiana State Representative Cedric Glover wants to let local governments decide the future of marijuana use.
Glover has filed a bill that calls for a constitutional amendment giving local governments the authority to call an election for the purpose of “authorizing the sale, possession, distribution, and use of marijuana within the jurisdiction of the governing authority.”
If approved, HB 346 would allow a city, town, or parish to let voters decide whether marijuana should be legal locally.
Glover’s bill will be heard during the upcoming Louisiana Legislative Session which begins on Monday, March 9.
