Legal medical marijuana in Minnesota is one step closer and now in the hands of the House Operations Committee after passing a different committee on Tuesday night.

Supporters of the bill spent hours sharing their stories with lawmakers in a different committee, but most law enforcement groups in the state are opposed to medical marijuana.

David Thorson of the Minnesota Medical Association joined Megan Newquist in the 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS studio to talk about the pros and cons of legalizing medical marijuana in the state.
