Ventura for Medical Pot

April 05, 2001|Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Gov. Jesse Ventura said Wednesday he supports legalizing marijuana for medical use.

"Medical marijuana? I fully support it, absolutely. Who is government to tell someone if they have AIDS or cancer, what they should be taking?" Ventura said in response to a question from a student at the University of St. Thomas.

A bill before the Legislature this year would appropriate $100,000 to study medicinal uses of marijuana.
