Wash. — Gov. Chris Gregoire says she will reveal her decision on the medical marijuana bill approved by the Legislature during her bill action time Friday afternoon.

The governor is scheduled to take action on a number of bills and has the option of partially vetoing a bill or signing it into law.

The Legislature has passed a major overhaul of the state's medical marijuana law in spite of a veto threat by the governor. The measure would for protect some patients from being arrested and create a system for licensing storefront dispensaries and grow operations.

On Wednesday, Gregoire reiterated her stance that signing the bill as it stands will put state employees at risk of federal prosecution, an argument contended by constitutional experts. Gregoire has hinted at a partial veto that would take out the regulatory proposals advocates fought for during the session.
