Additionally, it would not have required insurance companies to cover it and employers wouldn't have been required to allow employees to smoke pot on the job.
According to reports, it was estimated that the measure would generate $5 million to $12 million a year in tax revenue.
The bill was sponsored by Rep. Jeff Clemens.
