Medical marijuana is another passage closer to becoming law. A Kentucky House committee approved the bill today.

If passed, it would be legal for those suffering from conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, and HIV/AIDS to use the drug.

A similar bill was introduced last year, but it did not pass any committees.

Medical marijuana use is already legal in its neighboring state Illinois.
