MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Alabama Senate voted Thursday morning to pass a medical marijuana bill.
The Senate had delayed a vote on the bill under a threat of filibuster, but it passed the chamber after a morning vote by a 17-6 margin.
The bill would set up a state oversight commission and a process for prescribing marijuana for people with certain medical conditions.
The legislation now moves on to the Alabama House.
