Pawlenty's desk may get a visit from Puff

The Minnesota Independent(ea):

A bill to allow incurably ill patients to legally purchase marijuana is up for consideration in the Minnesota Senate. The Medical Use of Marijuana bill (SF 97) is nearly identical to a bill that passed the Senate last year and almost passed the House. It enjoys partisan support this year, although last year Gov. Tim Pawlenty indicated he would veto such a bill so long as law enforcement opposed it.

Minnesotans are high on the idea, with 64% supporting the measure, including 58% of Republicans.
