Abe is rolling (over) in his grave.





SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- The Illinois House this afternoon narrowly voted down the authorization of marijuana for medicinal purposes, but the sponsor of the bill, Rep. Lou Lang, D-Skokie, pledges to continue pushing towards legalizing the illicit herb.


"What we have to do now is wait for the new session to start, introduce a new piece of legislation and start over," Lang said, after the bill fell four votes short of the 60 necessary for passage.


The medical marijuana bill (HB1381) would have allowed people suffering from chronic pain or nausea caused by certain debilitating conditions, to be prescribed a potent dose cannabis to alleviate their symptoms.
