MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Medicinal marijuana advocates will get their day in legislative committee this afternoon.

The House Health Committee is holding a public hearing at 1 p.m. to hear from advocates and opponents of legalizing medicinal marijuana.

Rep. Patricia Todd, D-Birmingham, has been unsuccessfully pushing a bill for several years that would make small amounts of marijuana available by prescription to people with certain medical conditions.

"We need all the medical options available to the people who are suffering," Todd said.

"It's just common sense to me."

The hearing will be held in the coincidentally named Joint Briefing Room of the Alabama State House. A rally is planned for noon.
