A proposal to legalize medical marijuana is going before its second House committee.
Pot as medicine made it through the Health and Human Services Policy Committee last week after emotional testimony that included mothers describing the drug's ability to reduce epileptic seizures, intense pain and nausea.
Tuesday's hearing is before the Government Operations Committee.
It could still be a long way to the House floor. Speaker Paul Thissen said last week he doesn't plan to let a bill on the floor without police support. And state law-enforcement groups and most Minnesota Medical Association members remain opposed to the bill.
Medical marijuana is allowed in 20 states and Washington.
