Medical marijuana progress

The state senate in Minnesota has given preliminary approval to a medical marijuana bill. It's not a sure thing yet, but an important step.

Meanwhile, in Michigan, the state's medical marijuana law, approved by voters last November, officially went into effect, with the Dept. of Community Health issuing about 150 patient ID cards. The department has received about 700 applications and is processing them deliberately.Here's the Website of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Association. Apparently implementation is not without kinks, but state authorities seem to be trying to comply with the law rather than resisting or dragging their feet.

Very happy to hear about the progress of medical marijuana in other states. I'm in CA and in the doctor biz, so I've seen how much this drug can help many patients. Hope more states pass medical marijuana laws soon!
