BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A freshman lawmaker from Fargo is pushing for the legalization of medicinal marijuana in North Dakota.

Democratic Rep. Pam Anderson’s bill has bipartisan support.

Anderson says she introduced the legislation at the request of one of her constituents who suffers from chronic pain.

She says the 64-year-old man gets sick from taking prescription drugs for pain.

The National Conference of State Legislatures says 23 states have laws allowing medical marijuana.

Anderson says the public is becoming more accepting of allowing the use of medical marijuana. But she’s not too sure about the state Legislature.
