(MONTGOMERY, Ala.) The Alabama Medical Marijuana Coalition is organizing a rally Wednesday in Montgomery, in hopes of legalizing marijuana in the state.
The rally will be held from noon until 3 p.m. Wednesday outside the Statehouse. There is also a hearing planned at 1 p.m. on HB2 The Alabama Medical Marijuana Patients' Rights Act.
On its website, the AMMJC says its focus and common goal is to change the laws concerning medical marijuana for patients in Alabama. It says "excessive government regulations infringe on the physician's ability and the patient's right to properly treat their ailment."
The group is urging those affected by cancer, HIV/AIDS, pain, MS and Alzheimer's to head to Montgomery Wednesday to show support.
