Position on Medical Marijuana

Sen. Michelle Benson says she’s not ready for the [medical marijuana] plant-based option. She needs more information from physicians first.

“But what I need to hear from the doctors enrolling patients in this program is that they have confidence they can meet the patient needs with the materials,” she said. “And I haven’t heard that information from them, so we’re gonna go slowly with this.” (5/19/19)
