The Associated Press reported that today Minnesota became the 22nd US state to legalize medical marijuana. However, some of the tightest restrictions in the country surround its use.
As quoted in the market news:
Medical conditions eligible for the treatment include cancer, glaucoma and AIDS. A physician assistant or advanced-practice registered nurse would certify a patient suffered from a qualifying illness.
If all goes as planned, the drug will be available in pill, oil and vapor form in mid-2015. Two manufacturing facilities and eight dispensaries will be permitted statewide.
