The Governor of the CNMI, Republican Ralph Torres, now has less than a month to either sign or veto the measure; if he does nothing, it will become laws 28 days from the time that the Senate passed it. Although Torres has expressed reservations in the past about the safety aspects of legalization, many are optimistic that the GOP Governor will sign the bill that got such overwhelming support from the GOP-dominated legislature. The measure passed the CNMI House 18-1 earlier this month.
