BATON ROUGE, La. -- Gov. Bobby Jindal said Wednesday that he backs making medical marijuana available in Louisiana as long as it is tightly controlled.
“I continue to be opposed to legalization of marijuana. When it comes to medical marijuana ... if there is a legitimate medical need, I’d certainly be open to making it available under very strict supervision for patients that would benefit from that,” Jindal said while fielding media questions at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center.
