Medical Marijuana Passes Senate Committee Despite Chiefs of Police Opposition

A bill to allow the use of marijuana to treat certain illnesses is a step closer to passage.


A Senate committee approved the measure Wednesday on a vote of 10 to 5.


A full Senate vote could happen next week, and if it passes there, the bill goes to Governor Pat Quinn.


Passage came despite a push against the bill from the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police, which warns that legalizing medical marijuana will mean more impaired drivers on the road.
