Minnesota medical pot?

The University of Minnesota Duluth’s Center for Ethics and Public Policy is sponsoring a sites.google.com/a/d.umn.edu/cepp panel discussion regarding the possibility of legalizing medical marijuana in the state.

The panel, which takes place Nov. 11 from 6-8 p.m. in UMD’s Bohannon Hall, Room 90, will feature Rep. Carly Melin, DFL, representing District 6A. Melin introduced HF 1818, a bill to allow people with serious illness access to, and use of, medical marijuana upon a doctor’s recommendation.

The panel also will include Heather Azzi, political director for Minnesotans for Compassionate Care; Rep. Bob Barrett, a Republican representing District 32B; and Cody Wiberg, Pharm.D, who is the executive director of the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy.
