Lawmaker Looking For Final Votes To Pass Medical Marijuana Bill


The sponsor of a bill to legalize marijuana use for medicinal purposes is asking people to contact their local lawmaker and urge them to support the bill. 

 

State Representative Lou Lang (D-Skokie) says he is only one or two votes short of approval in the House… and believes more than a dozen lawmakers want to support the bill but fear a political backlash. 

 

Lang dismisses the idea that approving medical marijuana will open the door for more widespread use of pot. He says the point of the bill is simply to provide relief for seriously ill people.
