Minnesota medical marijuana bill forum draws huge crowd
Legislation by an Iron Range DFL’er is drawing big attention in Duluth.
More than 200 people attended a public forum at UMD Monday on a bill to legalize marijuana introduced this spring with help from Rep. Carly Melin, DFL-Hibbing. Since then she’s been getting input and feedback from the public.
Melin said medical marijuana will offer pain relief with fewer side effects. She also said there are stiff penalties should anyone misuse the system.
