FILE - In a Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014 file photo, medical marijuana advocates Shannon Cloud, left, from Smyrna, Ga., hugs Corey Lowe, as Rep. Allen Peake, R-Macon, right, receives a congratulatory handshake after he introduced a bill to legalize medicinal marijuana after a Georgia Legislative session in the House chamber, in Atlanta. Both Cloud and Lowe have children suffering from disease and believe marijuana can help relieve their pain. In states where lawmakers are more likely to talk about the importance of Second Amendment rights and displays of the Ten Commandments, there is a serious effort underway to legalize medical marijuana. The push is gaining momentum in the Deep South, due in large part to heart-breaking stories of children suffering dozens of seizures a day whose parents say they would benefit from access to a type of cannabis oil.(AP Photo/John Amis, File) less
