Medical marijuana bill headed for study committee


NASHVILLE, Tenn. A plan to legalize medicinal marijuana in Tennessee appears to be going up in smoke.
Senator Steve Cohen, the Memphis Democrat pushing the idea, said he recognizes the state isn't ready for prescription marijuana.

Cohen said he will ask that his bill allowing medical marijuana be changed to set up a study committee to look into the idea before next session.

But he said it's only a matter of time before Tennessee joins the ranks of states that allow the seriously ill to buy marijuana.
