It’s not medical marijuana. But it’s a start.

An Alabama House committee Wednesday approved a bill that would establish a commission to develop legislation and regulations for medical cannabis--a step back from a much more ambitious Senate version, but one that is more likely to the pass the House.

“It’s at a point where we can all work with it,” said Sen. Tim Melson, R-Florence, the sponsor of the bill. “It’s a big step and everybody is stepping out of their comfort zone."
