A local senator says he supports legalizing medical marijuana.

News Director Leslie Stratmoen has the story.

The topic of legalizing marijuana for medical purposes came up recently on our Public Pulse news talk show, during a conversation led by Host Kim Love with state Senator Bruce Burns of Sheridan and Representative Rosie Berger of Big Horn.

Love started the conversation by asking what would be the problem with having marijuana available through a pharmacy, by prescription.

Burns said he supported the idea, based on a personal experience with a family member.

But when Berger was asked to weigh in, she said she'd need more information.

She said Representative Sue Wallis of Recluse always comes up with interesting legislation.
