House Leaders Offer Marijuana Compromise

May 1, 2014, 1:24 PM

House Leaders Offer Marijuana Compromise
ST. PAUL, MN -

Democratic House leaders say they have a new compromise proposal on medical marijuana that is unopposed by law enforcement.

Their proposal would create a limited clinical trial for children and adults suffering from severe illnesses. Supporters say the reworked bill incorporates a proposal from Gov. Mark Dayton earlier but goes farther by guaranteeing that medication will be available even if no federal clinical trial is approved.

A push to legalize medical marijuana has been blocked this session largely by opposition from law enforcement. Dayton has wanted their approval and came forward with his clinical trial proposal when that didn't happen.

The new proposal doesn't allow smoking of marijuana, delivering it by other means instead.

Rep. Carly Melin says the limited approach will still result in "real help for families."
