I favor full legalization at the federal and state level. The DFL itself, not just Representative Melin, need to be "honest brokers" about this very complex issue. The legality of state medical marijuana itself is suspect. We need to address the core problem: the legal status of marijuana at the federal level. Cannabis substances are schedule I under the Controlled Substances Act. This is federal law. Federal law supersedes conflicting state law. The DFL is proposing law that conflicts federal law.
