Supporters of medical marijuana in Kansas are joining two Democratic state lawmakers at a Statehouse rally in favor of the Cannabis Compassionate Care Act.

Representative Gail Finney and Senator David Haley filed medical marijuana bills prior to the start of this year's legislative session.

In addition to today's rally, several medical cannabis groups also will be lobbying state lawmakers on behalf of patients and caregivers.

The Topeka Capitol Journal reports the rally sponsored by Bleeding Kansas and Kansas for Change.
