On This Date in Minnesota History: May 16

May 16, 2014 – A bill legalizing medical marijuana was passed by the Senate and House with “significant bipartisan support.”

The law “authorizes access to the drug for about 5,000 Minnesotans with conditions including cancer, epilepsy, HIV/AIDS and a handful of others. With a health care provider’s permission, those patients will enroll in a patient registry that will allow the state Department of Health to monitor their progress.”

“The drug will be available only in pill or oil forms, with smoking not allowed and access to the drug in its original plant form forbidden.”

If you are interested in finding out more about your family history in Minnesota, I specialize in researching  genealogical and historical records in Minn. and western Wis., including:
census records,  birth records,  death certificates, obits, grave site photos, ship passenger lists, marriage records and declarations of intent/naturalization records.  I will visit locations to research local history and county records, as well as take photos. Quick turnaround on MNHS records. Both short searches and family history reports available.


Discover your roots, and watch the branches of your family tree begin to grow.
