(BOISE, ID) — The Idaho House has approved a resolution condemning the legalization of marijuana. The vote passed 63 – 7 Wednesday, sending a clear message that the majority of Gem State lawmakers are against the use of marijuana in any form. The Senate passed the same resolution last month. Democratic opponents to the resolution argued that Idaho was passing unfair judgment on the legislative and voter-backed actions of neighboring states. Supporters say there are effective alternative treatments for ill people that don’t require the use of cannabis.
