The State legislature is likely to address the possibility of legalizing marijuana for more than medical use during the 2020 legislative session. State Representative Tim O'Driscoll from Sartell joined me on WJON today.
With over 60 overdoses in a week within Minneapolis, synthetic marijuana has recently seen a large spike in the Twin Cities. Here in Central Minnesota, the drug, more commonly known as K2 or Spice isn't as large a concern, however, authorities are keeping an eye out.
The use of medical cannabis is still a controversial topic in the United States. The federal government still considers marijuana a schedule-1 drug, meaning it has no medical use and is highly addictive. But 28 states, including Minnesota, have legalized marijuana to be used for medical purposes.
