Possible Vote On MN Medical Marijuana Delayed

April 8, 2014, 2:20 PM

Possible Vote On MN Medical Marijuana Delayed
ST. PAUL, MN -

A possible Minnesota House vote on legalizing medical marijuana has been delayed for a couple of weeks.

Republican Rep. Pat Garofalo of Farmington was hoping to attach an amendment that would legalize medical marijuana to a separate health bill. But that bill has been pulled from Wednesday's docket until after the Legislature's Passover/Easter break that begins the next day.

Garofalo's amendment calls for a broader medical marijuana law than Gov. Mark Dayton has said he is willing to back. Dayton didn't issue a veto threat Tuesday but said legislators "have hidden behind their desks" while he strained to bridge concerns of advocates and law enforcement.

A stand-alone medical marijuana bill has stalled. Even some of those who support the cause could balk at tying it to a separate bill.
