A bill to allow the medical use of marijuana has died in the North Dakota House.
Supporters say medical marijuana would be used in cases of chronic pain and severe illness. Rep. Pamela Anderson (D-Fargo) authored the bill. She says she introduced it on behalf of a constituent, who she says tried everything he could to ease the pain – and nothing worked.
"This is not a drug issue," said Anderson. "It's quality of life for the citizens of North Dakota."
