The debate over medical marijuana took center stage at the State Capitol on Tuesday afternoon.

Lawmakers are considering a medical marijuana cultivation bill.

The bill would allow for in-state cultivation of medical marijuana within the state.

But many who attended a news conference Tuesday were concerned the drug could be used for full-blown recreational use if passed.

They also discussed the negative effects and risks of using marijuana.

Supporters of the bill say it would not* lead to recreational use of marijuana.
