Medical Marijuana Bill To Be Introduced At Minnesota Legislature


ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - A group of lawmakers joined patients and advocates at a Capitol news conference Thursday in St. Paul to introduce a bill that would allow the use of medical marijuana if their doctors recommend it.  Representative Carly Melin from Hibbing is the lead author of the bill in the House and Senator Scott Dibble of Minneapolis will introduce a companion bill in the Senate.  The Political Director for the group "Minnesota Cares" says nearly two-thirds of Minnesota voters agree that it's time to adopt legislation that would allow seriously ill patients the option to use medical marijuana if doctors believe it will help their condition and ease their suffering.
