The state’s 2014 law allowing sales of medical marijuana pills, oils and vapors took effect in July, and state health officials said recently they would expand the burgeoning program to include patients suffering from intractable pain.

Lawmakers and medical experts on the Task Force on Medical Cannabis Therapeutic Research met Tuesday to discuss that Minnesota Department of Health decision, a move that is expected to grow the program by thousands of participants.

“I do think there needs to be more conversation and a broader consensus about what that means,” said Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Edward Ehlinger.

The task force also discussed its report to the Legislature and the results of a survey on medical professionals’ attitudes toward medical cannabis.
