(JEFFERSON CITY) Legalizing medical marijuana cleared a hurdle in the state legislature.


The Missouri House voted Tuesday to legalize medical marijuana.

The bill allows anyone over 18 with a terminal illness or people with Alzheimer's disease, cancer or post-traumatic stress disorder to use smokeless medical marijuana.

The bill still needs to pass the Senate.

Tomorrow we will see lots of sunshine as a area of high pressure continues to move into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The colder temperatures will start to move away from the area on Saturday. Then over the weekend we will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s and watch for our next chance for rain on Sunday.
