Push to Legalize Marijuana in NC Growing

There's a major push to legalize medical marijuana in the state. More than 100 people gathered in Raleigh Thursday afternoon to try to sway lawmakers to legalize it.

Among the groups fighting for legal pot are veterans, who say smoking marijuana helps them with migraines and injuries.

North Carolina Representative Kelly Alexander has tried unsuccessfully for eight years to legalize the drug, but believes support for legalization is growing.
