(St. Paul, MN) -- Governor Dayton continues being the focus of criticism as medical marijuana legislation remains stalled at the Minnesota Capitol. Dayton said Friday having a loved one go through suffering is "terrible to witness," but lawmakers are making policy for five million people and there must be a very careful protocol before a drug is authorized for public use. The governor said it's very hard to be villified and told he doesn't care about people and their suffering. Republicans accuse Dayton of waffling on the issue. Medical marijuana advocates say his comments about marijuana being available on the street are insensitive and irresponsible.
