Dayton Talks Medical Marijuana 14 Mar 14

Governor Dayton’s comment, that people who want medical marijuana can “go out in any city in Minnesota” and purchase it, is drawing sharp criticism at the State Capitol. Some lawmakers are calling Dayton’s comment “irresponsible” and say it demonstrates a total lack of empathy for patients dealing with the situation. Dayton says he’s not advocating anyone do anything illegal, but that legalizing medical marijuana would have adverse consequences for many more people in Minnesota.
