High Hopes For Minn. Medical-Marijuana Supporters

February 24, 2014, 5:05 AM

High Hopes For Minn. Medical-Marijuana Supporters
ST. CLOUD, MN -

Supporters of medical marijuana say the state's 2014 legislative session, which starts Tuesday, may be Minnesota's best chance in years to see pot legalized for medical use.

Gov. Mark Dayton has urged supporters to negotiate with opponents in law enforcement to reach a compromise. A report says that effort could finally be gaining momentum.

Democratic state Rep. Carly Melin is the lead House sponsor of medical marijuana legislation. She says law enforcement groups had been refusing to negotiate. But she says some groups are now willing to consider legalizing certain extracts.

John Kingrey of the Minnesota County Attorneys Association says his group still opposes any bill making it legal to smoke marijuana for medicinal purposes. But he says extracts in pill or inhaler form might work.
