ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Most of the doctors polled at a Minnesota Medical Association forum oppose the legislation that legalizes medical marijuana.

The bill passed a Minnesota House committee Wednesday, but still has a long road ahead in the Legislature.

The Medical Association says two-thirds of the 35 physicians attending a medical marijuana forum this week in Eagan oppose the bill. The forum's moderator and MMA board chairman, Dr. Dave Thorson, says many physicians felt more research is needed on the topic.

The association, as a whole, has not taken a position on the legislation. The MMA is also surveying its entire membership and that information will be forwarded to its board in mid-March.
