Minnesota moves closer to approving medical pot use

  • Minnesota state senators vote 48-18 in favor of legalizing physician-prescribed medical marijuana. The bill will permit up to 55 dispensing centers around the state although the health commissioner could approve additional sites.
  • Patients could legally possess up to 2.5 ounces of pot to be ingested in pills, oils or vaporized just shy of combustion. Smoking weed would still be illegal.
  • The bill allows for a research study to assess the effects of medical marijuana in pill or liquid form in patients with severe illnesses.
  • The Senate's version differs from the House's version so more work needs to be done before it passes over the Governor's desk.

    This is Absolutely wonderful news for those thousands of families members who cannot get access to the medical marijuana.
    have u ever thought that how much money can the state and federal government generate if this thing is just legalized in half of the states only for medical purpose
