Louisiana's Agriculture Commissioner Mike Strain talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the timetable for the availability of medical marijuana in the state.

"Frustrated Louisiana patients waiting for medical marijuana to appear in regional pharmacies received updates Monday on the lengthy regulatory and testing process, but few timelines for when they'll gain access to medicinal-grade pot to treat chronic conditions.
Previous estimates of when medical marijuana would be available have come and gone. As the state nears the four-year mark since creating the framework for dispensing therapeutic cannabis, the latest estimate for availability seems to be summer, maybe."
