Members of the Presbyterian Church USA voted Monday to support medical marijuana prescriptions for seriously ill patients.


The measure was passed at the church’s 217th general assembly, which was held in Birmingham.


The group endorsed what they call “legal access to medical marijuana for seriously ill patients.” Part of the resolution read “when we see the suffering of others, we are called to stand up and take a look.”


Medical marijuana laws are already on the books in 11 states and state Rep. Laura Hall of Huntsville is backing similar legislation.
