A new poll shows a slight majority of Minnesotans asked about legalizing medical marijuana support it.

The Star Tribune finds 51 percent of those surveyed support using marijuana for medical reasons. 41 percent oppose such a move.

The poll last week also found 63 percent oppose legalizing marijuana for recreational use. A bipartisan group of lawmakers is expected to push for medical marijuana when the Legislature returns to work later this month.
