Medical marijuana bill passes AL Senate

By  | 

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.
