ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Gov. Mark Dayton is proposing a $2.2 million study on medical marijuana.

The Associated Press obtained a draft of the governor’s bill from advocates of legalizing the drug for medical use. The governor’s office confirmed it in a statement later Friday, saying the governor is searching for ideas that can pass this legislative session.

Medical marijuana has stalled. Dayton has said in the past he wouldn’t support legalization unless law enforcement did, and that hasn’t happened.

The governor’s draft bill would have the Mayo Clinic study cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, a marijuana compound that does not produce a high.

Many people say CBD helps some patients who suffer from epileptic seizures and psychosis induced by schizophrenia.
