Marijuana legalization bills introduced in state Legislature


Several key Hawaii lawmakers want to legalize marijuana in the Aloha State.

House Speaker Joseph Souki and House Majority Leader Scott Saiki introduced a bill to legalize the possession of up to an ounce of marijuana by people aged 21 years or older.

Nine lawmakers co-sponsored a similar bill in the state Senate.

The move comes in the wake of marijuana legalization in Colorado and Washington last year.
