Davids-Medical Marijuana

A bill with tight limits on use of marijuana as medicine has reached a pivotal Minnesota House vote.
Days after the Senate overwhelmingly passed a more-expansive version, House lawmakers planned to debate its own proposal and almost 50 potential amendments Friday.

Republican Representative, Greg Davids of Preston, says he will never support any version of a bill he says is a smokescreen to legalize pot.

The House bill allows people with certain conditions to use marijuana in pill, liquid, oil or vapor form. It prohibits smoking.

Davids says the medical community has plenty of options to treat people with certain medical conditions.

Law enforcement publicly opposes the Senate measure but is neutral on the current House bill. Governor Mark Dayton has aligned himself with police and prosecutors in calls for stricter controls.
