Medical Marijuana Enters Legislative Fray

It's law in a few other states, but a bill supporting the use of so-called "medical marijuana" has been filed in the Texas Legislature.

It is supported by several lawmakers from Austin and would give those charged with possession of marijuana a defense in court, if they were acting on the advice of a doctor.

The bill has been assigned to a committee, but hearings on the bill are still to come.
