Legalizing Medical Marijuana
Supporters of medical marijuana are trying to turn up the heat on Gov. Mark Dayton with a new TV ad that will debut in prime late-night and daytime slots. Their ad features a St. Paul woman and her 5-year-old son, whose daily seizures from intractable epilepsy have been eased by medical marijuana. The woman, Angela Garin, says in the ad she was shocked to learn that Dayton is blocking legalization of medical marijuana in Minnesota.
Supporters of legalizing medical marijuana in North Dakota turned in a proposed initiative Tuesday to put the issue on the November ballot.
