Dayton offers medical marijuana compromise
ST. PAUL — Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton prefers to launch two medical marijuana studies instead of legalizing it this year.
The governor suggests spending $2.2 million on a Mayo Clinic medical study about whether one chemical from marijuana helps children with types of epilepsy. Another $390,000 would be available for a study headed by the state health commissioner to look into what has happened in areas that already allow medical marijuana.
