Nine of the fifteen North Country representatives voting on Wednesday were in favor of Senate Bill 409 which would legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
Six representatives voted against the action and one was excused from voting.
Sponsors of the effort included Sen. John Gallus of Berlin as well as Representative Evalyn Merrick, a Democrat from Lancaster.
The bill already passed the Senate and now goes to Gov. Lynch.
