Legislature What Happened-3 [Duplicate]

FILE - In this May 9, 2014 file photo, Medical marijuana advocates watch as the Minnesota House of Representatives vote on a bill that would legalize marijuana use for medical reasons at the Capitol in St. Paul, Minn. Democrats who control the Minnesota Legislature can brag about key accomplishments in the just-completed session, including a big boost in the minimum wage and a tougher statewide anti-bullying law. But they needed and got help from Republicans to push through $1.1 billion in spending on construction projects, major tax relief and legalized medical marijuana.
