AT 10: Medical marijuana closer to legal status

Good Wednesday evening everyone.

A bill is on its way to the Alabama Legislature that would legalize medical marijuana in our state. WAFF 48's Tiani Jones spoke with the sponsor of the bill, Senator Bobby Singleton, as well as a family in Ft. Payne who has a child who they say would benefit from the marijuana derivative.

A Huntsville company is embarking on a revolutionary approach to deciphering the human body. The HudsonAlpha Institute is working on cutting-edge technology to become one of the few places in the world to study whole gene sequencing. It's a fascinating venture that WAFF 48's Liz Hurley will explain at 10.

Also, modern technology allowed a Huntsville couple to actually see their house being burglarized. We'll show you what they saw on their home surveillance system, and also explain how you could pocket up to a thousand dollars in our Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers report.

We hope to see you at 10!
