Pawlenty vetoes Minn. medical marijuana bill
Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota, who, you may remember, was on a number of "short lists" for the Republican vice presidential nomination, has vetoed the medical marijuana bill passed by the state legislature. His veto message said he was concerned about medmar production without federal supervision. He doesn't seem to be much of a states-rights Republican; in fact he sounds like a bit of a moron -- that hasn't been a concern or problem in any of the13 states with medical marijuana laws. Apparently some Minnesota voices are expressing dismay.
