Panel Hears Testimony On Pot Reforms

The Rhode Island Senate's Judiciary Committee is holding a bill that would legalize and regulate marijuana for further study.  The panel heard hours of testimony on the measure during a hearing yesterday, including from an attorney who helped write Colorado's pot law.  The one being offered in Rhode Island would allow people over the age of 21 to possess up to an ounce of marijuana, and create a regulated system of retail stores.  A poll taken in April showed 57 percent of people in the state support legal pot.
