Negotiators to talk medical marijuana


ST. PAUL - Minnesota House and Senate negotiators will attempt to find a medical marijuana compromise.

Senators Tuesday morning voted not to accept a House-passed bill to allow patients to use marijuana. That sets up the process to establish a conference committee to work out differences between the bills.

Work must be completed by when legislators adjourn for the year. The last day lawmakers can pass bills is Sunday, although it is rare to hold Sunday sessions.
