The Alabama House of Representatives is debating a medical marijuana bill that is headed to a a vote.

The bill would allow people with qualifying medical conditions to purchase marjuana after getting a recommendation from a doctor.

House Speaker Mac McCutcheon made a last-minute request to add the bill to the House debate calendar and said last month that he expected a close vote on the bill.

The proposal has already passed in the Alabama Senate.
