Minnesota Medical Pot Bill Goes To Senate Floor

May 5, 2014, 1:30 PM

Minnesota Medical Pot Bill Goes To Senate Floor

A bill to legalize medical marijuana is headed to the Senate floor after passage by the Finance Committee.

The committee passed the bill 14-7 on Monday after adding a few wrinkles to the legislation.

It now would track medical practitioners who issue opinions that cannabis likely would alleviate a patient's symptoms. It also would track the conditions being treated. And it would track the actual costs to state public safety and health departments of starting a program, and compare that to the projected costs.

Sen. Scott Dibble, the Minneapolis Democrat sponsoring the bill, said fees assessed to patients, alternative treatment centers and labs would make the program pay for itself.
