The state Senate has approved amendments to the Medical Marijuana bill.
As originally proposed, the hill would not have allowed smoking marijuana. But the amendments spell out the idea that with a doctor’s permission, a patient can smoke from the leaves and flowers of the plant.
"Leafs and flowers? That's pot," said Sen. Oley Larson (R-Minot). "That's not medicine."
Larson had proposed allowing people to smoke “hash resin” instead.
