Hitting the books: Students attend medical marijuana classes

Tampa, Fla. Reading, writing and arithmetic. Now, students are taking on classes with a new subject: reefer.

Officials have converted an old cigar factory into a classroom that teaches the advantages of medical marijuana, and how it can help alleviate patient's chronic pain.

So far 20 states have legalized the use of medical marijuana, and Tennessee may not be far behind.

A bill in the Tennessee legislature that "decriminalizes the use of medical cannabis" is currently assigned to the House of Representatives Health subcommittee for debate.
