ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Another medical marijuana manufacturer in Minnesota is offering a discount amid criticism by patients about the high cost of the medicine.

Minnesota Medical Solutions on Thursday said it would offer a 50 percent discount during October on a patient’s first visit to reduce an initial cost burden that also includes program registration fees. And for current patients, the company will implement a point program based on their purchase amount. The points can be used to reduce the cost of future medicine.

The discount plan follows a similar move earlier this week by LeafLine Labs. It announced a discount for patients buying a month’s supply of medicine.

Executives from both companies have acknowledged the high prices can be difficult for many patients and vowed to cut costs as the program grows.
