Alabama senators took only about 15 minutes this afternoon to pass a bill to regulate the production, sales and use of medical marijuana.
The legislation would still have to pass the House of Representatives to become law.
On a 21-8 vote, the Senate passed the bill by Sen. Tim Melson, R-Florence. It would allow doctors to recommend medical cannabis products for a broad range of conditions such as anxiety, nausea, chronic pain, and sleep disorders.
The Senate has also passed the bill the last two years, but it has stalled in the House. Melson said the legislation this year is essentially the same as what the Senate passed last year.
