State legislators behind a bill that would legalize marijuana for medical use in Minnesota need to mellow out, according to Dakota County law enforcement officials.
The assessment came as part of a forum on the subject of legalized marijuana hosted by the Dakota County Attorney’s Office at Thompson Park’s Dakota Lodge in West St. Paul Nov. 20. Dakota County Attorney Jim Backstrom told those in attendance he worried attitudes toward cannabis were growing more lax due to misinformation and apathy.
