About 100 people attended a weekend rally in Topeka to support legalizing marijuana.
Topeka City Councilman Andrew Gray, a Libertarian, said during the rally Saturday outside the Statehouse that legalizing marijuana would open up a source of tax revenue and make available more diverse pain management options for patients.
Jon Hauxwell, a retired family physician from Hays, said he doesn't support legalizing the drug for young people whose brains are still forming.
But he says denying patients access to marijuana for medication is "unconscionable."
