Minnesota medical cannabis task force meets for the first time


The last time we heard legislators arguing about medical cannabis, it was in May, with politicians, law enforcement officials, and activists taking swings at each other over how broad the legislation should be. The bill the state ultimately passed was underwhelming, and left several legislators fuming over just how narrow it was.
On Thursday, those same legislators, activists, and law enforcement officials gathered together again, for the first meeting of the state’s 23-member medical marijuana task force. This time, the mood was far more cordial, reports the Minneapolis City Pages.
