MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A medical marijuana bill on Wednesday cleared its first major hurdle in the Alabama House of Representatives.
The House Judiciary Committee approved the bill after lengthy debate and multiple amendment attempts. The bill now goes to the Health Committee after House leaders decided the controversial bill must go through two committees before going to a floor vote. A version of the proposal has already passed the state Senate.
