Republicans dodge vote on Tallian marijuana amendment

INDIANAPOLIS – State Senator Karen Tallian (D-Ogden Dunes) had an amendment to end jail time for possession of small amounts of marijuana, but the amendment was ruled non-germane to the bill. Since she was unable to offer the amendment for a vote in front of the full Senate, Sen. Tallian gave a point of personal privilege. 

“For many decades, this body has taken every opportunity to block this discussion,” Sen. Tallian said. “In those years, our surrounding states have moved forward on the issue of marijuana, either by allowing medical use, stopping arrests or fully legalizing the plant. Once again, Indiana Republican legislators dodged the clear will of 78 percent of Hoosiers.”
