(Nashville, TN) Senator Ophelia Ford, who is from Memphis, is co-sponsoring a bill to allow the sale and use of medical marijuana in Tennessee.
This means there is a bill in both the Senate and House in Tennessee.
Knoxville representatives Gloria Johnson and Joe Armstrong have also joined as co-sponsors.
The bill is named after a Tennessee family that recently moved to Colorado so their young daughter could use marijuana to ease severe seizures.
The family says the use in Colorado has eased their daughter's condition.
