Dibble optimistic about medical marijuana legislation


With hardline law enforcement lobbyists, a wavering governor and now almost-impossible deadlines, state Sen. Scott Dibble, DFL-Minneapolis, said his years-long fight to get medical marijuana legalized in Minnesota probably won’t happen in 2014. 

“This will pass,” said Dibble, who started in politics as an HIV/AIDS activist in the ‘80s. “Maybe not this year. But it will pass. It’s just too important.”

Dibble said it’s “unconscionable” not to pass this law. He introduced the medical marijuana Senate companion bill, SF 1641.
