Law Enforcement and the Governor should examine the impact that this type of legislation has had in the 13 states that have it. I don't think the results will support their positions. Perhap Minnesota should legislate that Viking football game should have starting times no earlier than 2:30 to avoid conflicts with attending church on Sundays. A more religious comm unity has less crime.

Not unless they can get enough legislators together to overturn Pawlenty's veto.

I hope they can. There is no excuse for withholding marijuana from sick people.

Pawlenty has to realize that this is not a partisan issue that he can hang his veto hat on to gain brownie points with the GOP. People of all political persuasions support this legislation by a resounding majority. If Pawlenty vetoes this compassionate legislation, the next general election will include a constitutional amendment that the people of Minnesota will vote in favor of. The polls have reflected as much. Michigan voters voted in favor of medical marijuana in greater numbers than Obama received. It is much easier to have more control over the laws if the legislature passes this bill. There is a two year sunset provision included. If the law is problematic or needs to be amended at that point, it is much easier than trying to overturn a constitutional amendment. Besides, why make sick and dying people wait yet another year? That is just downright cruel and unusual on Pawlenty's part.
