Jesse Ventura Urges Tim Walz to Legalize Marijuana

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura has some green advice for our next Governor, Tim Walz...and Walz might be all about it. 

According to, Ventura met with Walz at the Capitol Tuesday to advise him on transition issues and also pushed legalization of marijuana. 

Ventura, who served as Minnesota's 38th Governor from 1999 to 2003, ways our state is "missing the boat" on legal marijuana's economic benefits. Walz has expressed support for legalizing marijuana for recreational use in the past. 

Minnesota currently has medical marijuana available to those with qualifying conditions like autism and cancer, among others.
