MN: Ingebrigtsen opposes medical marijuana move

State Senator Bill Ingebrigtsen, R-Alexandria, was disappointed with recent developments in Minnesota’s medical marijuana laws.

On Dec. 2, Governor Mark Dayton, through the Commissioner of Health Ed Ehlinger, approved the use of medical cannabis for intractable pain.

“We are talking about adding a substantial number of participants,” said Ingebrigtsen. “Intractable pain can be considered a neck strain, a migraine issue. These symptoms should have been discussed thoroughly in an open public setting within the Legislature before being unilaterally approved.”

Ingebrigtsen added that a majority of a taskforce for medical cannabis disapproved of the move, along with a majority of practicing doctors.
