Newshawks: State Senator pushes for legal medical marijuana

Smoking marijuana is said to give you the “munchies.”

That’s exactly why one Mid-South AIDS patient smokes it every night.

“It helps me to eat and it also helps me to sleep,” says “John,” who we disguised because of legalities. Right now, marijuana for medical usage is illegal in most states, including Tennessee. That’s something State Senator Steve Cohen hopes to change.
