Northland’s News Center – Some Minnesota lawmakers are hoping the state could soon join 18 other states that have legalized medical marijuana. The UMD Center for Ethics and Public Policy sponsored a panel discussion Monday night on the proposed law that would allow people to purchase small amounts of marijuana from non-profit dispensaries across the state, with a doctor’s recommendation. The Minnesota bill, introduced in St. Paul this spring, is being carried by Representative Carly Melin (DFL-Hibbing) and Senator Scott Dibble (DFL-Minneapolis).
