Dayton: Keep seeking compromise on marijuana

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- One day after Gov. Mark Dayton appeared to discount any legislation on medical marijuana this year, he is urging advocates and legislators to keep talking in search of compromise.

Dayton says he has the "deepest sympathy" for children and adults with serious diseases who find relief in marijuana.

On Tuesday, Dayton had said his proposal for studying one aspect of medical marijuana appeared dead due to lack of support from people who want to see medical marijuana made legal. He said he was disappointed but would work for it next session.

On Wednesday the governor said he'd like to see a compromise that helps children. And he says it's wrong to portray him as the only barrier to people getting medical marijuana.
