Minnesota could soon join the other U.S. states that have legalized adult-use recreational cannabis.
Minnesota Governor Tim Walz said legalization could be one of the first bills introduced next year, according to the AP.
Republicans have previously blocked efforts to legalize recreational cannabis in Minnesota.
A legalization bill passed the state House last year but the Republican-controlled Senate did not vote on it.
But when the state’s legislature convenes in January, Democrats will control the governor’s office and both chambers.
Five other states voted on recreational cannabis in the most recent elections.
Maryland and Missouri approved recreational cannabis Tuesday, but North Dakota, South Dakota and Arkansas rejected it.
