COPY-Medical marijuana debate to take center stage at state Capitol

Posted:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KTTC) -- Medical marijuana once again takes center stage at the state Capitol.

SF 1641 gets a hearing and vote Friday morning.

The bill would allow very sick people to use marijuana if their doctors recommend it.

The Senate Committee on Health, Human Services and Housing will hear testimony from a Twin Cities doctor and several of his patients who suffer from debilitating and painful medical conditions.

A companion bill received committee approval back in march.

Still, Gov. Dayton continues to side with state law enforcement who wants nothing to do with medical marijuana.
