Minnesota currently has many supporters for medical marijuana use that want to make it legal. Governor Mark Dayton is refusing to sign anything without having support from law enforcement. Law enforcement is stating that marijuana is the addictive gateway drug that leads to other illicit drugs and violence. This is upsetting supporters because the Governor is listening to police officers who are not medical professionals and stating that they are not convinced that marijuana relieves pain.
