Medical pot sales to begin
This week, Minnesota will be the latest state to enter the world of medical marijuana. Patients and advo- cates already have changes in mind, and clinics don’t start selling the medicine until Wednesday.
The state has some of the tightest restrictions in the country.
Smoking the plant is banned, and only oils and pills are allowed. The drugs are being sold in only eight locations.
Maren Schroeder helped her mother, Kathy Schroeder, get signed up for access in the hope of treating multiple sclerosis and glaucoma. She says the issues have been worse than she had anticipated.
Some advocates hope the state will add more dispensaries and allow people suffering chronic pain to get medical marijuana.
