Yesterday, an Illinois House committee voted 4-3 on a bill that would bring medical marijuana to the state. Chicago Public Radio spoke to Rep. Lou Lang (D) and Rep. Patricia Bellock (R) to get perspective from both sides of the aisle. (Interesting side note: medical marijuana has apparently been legal in Illinois since '78, but never put into practice.)
