North Carolina lawmaker, Rep. Kelly Alexander has lead the charge with a bill that would legalize medical marijuana within the state three times before. This session, however, he is much more confident. He feels that increased public support and possible inflow of tax revenue that would come with sales($100 million+!), leads him to feel more than ever that the bill could pass this time around.
A rally in support of the bill is expected to take place next week outside the Statehouse in Raleigh, according to reports.
