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

The bill still needs to pass the Senate.

Showers will continue overnight and heading into Wednesday morning. There is the possibility some patchy fog could also develop so you may want to allow some extra time to get to work in the morning. Lows will be in the 60s.
