The State Senate Education and Health Committee is pushing legislation to legalize two derivatives of the marijuana for medical use.
The bill brought forward by Fairfax Democrat David Marsden would allow doctors to prescribe canibidiol oil and/or THC-A oil to treat patients with debilitating epilepsy.
The bill passed in the committee despite State Police testimony warning of the dangers of going against federal law.
The bill will now proceed to the Republican-controlled Courts of Justice Committee, where other marijuana reforms died earlier this week.
(Metro) Toyota is recalling 52-thousand cars.
The company said today their Avalon sedans from the 2011 and 2012 model years have a wiring problem that could cause a fire.
Apparently cargo in the trunk could move tiny wires connected to the audio speakers and cause the subwoofer to overheat.
Toyota says there have been no injuries or fires related to the problems with the vehicles.
