ST. PAUL, Minnesota. After Gov. Tim Pawlenty vetoed a bill passed by the Minnesota State Legislature that would have permitted the legal sale of marijuana for some medical purposes, backers of medical marijuana said their next step is to fight to have the state legislature vote to put a constitutional amendment to the Minnesota Constitution on the November 2010 ballot.

Tom Rukavina sponsored the medical marijuana legislation in the Minnesota House of Representatives and Steve Murphy sponsored it in the Minnesota State Senate. Both vowed to continue their battle.[1]
