Our view: Credit Melin for marijuana measure
Give Rep. Carly Melin of Hibbing all sorts of credit. She stuck to it. She wasn’t deterred. Not even when it was widely accepted that legalizing marijuana for medical treatments was a hopeless cause this legislative session. There wasn’t enough time. And stiff opposition from Minnesota’s powerful law-enforcement community and from Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton was insurmountable.
