INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana could be one step closer to legalizing medical marijuana in the state, after a overwhelming vote to study it this summer.

Thursday morning, the Indiana House of Representatives voted unanimously to create a summer study committee to look at the issue of medical marijuana. 

If the Indiana Senate approves the resolution, a committee will study the issue later this year. 

Rep. Matt Lehman (R-Adams County) said 29 other states have legalized the use of medical marijuana, and the summer committee would look at the best practices in those states as part of the study.

Many local advocates have come out on both sides of the issue over the past few months. Click on a headline below to learn more about each viewpoint.
