On Wednesday, medical marijuana patients and advocates held an emotional press conference slamming Gov. Mark Dayton for bowing to law enforcement and stalling on a medical marijuana bill currently being considered in the Minnesota legislature.

Those present, several of them parents of children with severe forms of epilepsy who could benefit from medical marijuana, said the governor told them they should risk arrest and obtain their medicine from the illicit market.

“He told me, ‘You can buy it on the street. It’s decriminalized in Minnesota. There’s a good distribution system here already,’” Jessica Hauser, 36, of Woodbury, told The Associated Press in an interview.

She said he also told her another option would be to buy it another state where medical marijuana was legal and bring it back to Minnesota.

“I told the governor that was unacceptable,” said Hauser, who has another son who is 5. “I shouldn’t have to become a criminal to help my son. I could lose both my children.”
