ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - More than 100 doctors have applied to be certified for Minnesota’s new medical cannabis program in the first week of registration.

As of Friday, 104 health care practitioners had applied to the state’s Office of Medical Cannabis. Fifty-four practitioners can now certify their patients to buy medical marijuana as soon as it’s legal, on July 1.

The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1dYkLYt ) reports eight patients have fully enrolled in the program so far. But 27 patients have been certified to participate by a doctor, nurse or other health care practitioner.

Minnesota places tight limits on medical cannabis. The program is restricted to patients with qualifying conditions.

Minnesota’s marijuana crop will be grown by two authorized companies and will be sold only in pill or liquid form at eight clinics around the state.
