Med­i­cal pot sales to be­gin

Los Angeles Times - - MONDAY BUSINESS -

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.
