A United States Congresswoman from Nevada told the Nevada Assembly that they need to advance the marijuana legislation they are considering, telling them to, “Puff, puff, pass that bill.”
In comments on Tuesday, April 18th, Rep. Dina Titus told the Nevada state legislators the Trump administrations immigration enforcement were “xenophobic policies” that had negatively impacted tourism in the state. She commended the legislators for the economic outlook for the state, and she encouraged them to pass their current marijuana legislation that will start the roll-out of the adult-use cannabis in the Silver State.
“With Tick Segerbloom, I am a member of the cannabis caucus,” Titus told the assembly. “We want to protect that marijuana industry. Tick, are you there? Okay, I am counting on you…puff, puff, pass that bill.”
The comment received laughter and applause as the assembly wrapped up their session for the day.
Democratic Senator Segerbloom introduced Senate Bill 302 on March 17th, but Governor Sandoval threatened to veto the bill. It has support in the legislature.
