Nebraska officials are speaking out against a bill that could legalize medical marijuana in the state.  Governor Pete Ricketts, Lieutenant Governor Mike Foley and former University of Nebraska football coach Tom Osborne hosted a news conference yesterday to voice their opposition to the proposal.  Ricketts mentioned several young people who died after consuming marijuana products.  Osborne noted that he has mentored people whose lives have been negatively impacted by the drug.
