TLANTA (AP) — After more than four hours of haggling and sometimes rancorous debate, Georgia's powerful Senate Health and Human Services Committee on Thursday passed its own version of a House bill that seeks to allow medical marijuana to be used for eight medical conditions, deleting only one diagnosis in a measure pushed by state Rep. Allen Peake, R-Macon.

His bill, which passed overwhelmingly in the House, would have allowed the use of cannabis oil for cancer, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, seizure disorders, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, Mitochondrial disease, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's disease and sickle cell anemia. The Senate's committee deleted Fibromyalgia but left the rest.
