MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WBRC) - The Alabama Senate passed a medical marijuana bill, 21-10 Wednesday. It will now move to the House for a final vote.
Earlier this month, the Alabama Senate Judiciary Committee passed the bill which allows people with certain health conditions to receive medical marijuana.
Some conditions include cancer, anxiety, and epilepsy. That person would need approval from a physician.
A medical marijuana bill passed the Senate last year. However the House never had a chance to vote on it because session ended early due to COVID.
