Dayton Says His Pot-Study Plan Lacks Buy-In

Dayton Says His Pot-Study Plan Lacks Buy-In
ST. PAUL, MN -

Gov. Mark Dayton says prospects for a study on one type of medicinal marijuana stand between "slim and none" because advocates for broader legalization don't appear interested.

Dayton told WCCO Radio on Tuesday that his proposal to spend more than $2 million to research a non-combustible form of marijuana lacks support. The study would have been conducted by Mayo Clinic doctors and was to involve pill or liquid marijuana extracts as a therapy for epileptic children.

Dayton's staff offered the marijuana study as a compromise.

Heather Azzi of Minnesotans for Compassionate Care says her group is still working toward a possible accord.

The Democratic governor has ruled out supporting legalization of marijuana that involves smoking the drug. He has aligned himself with law enforcement concerns on the issue.
