INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - There's a new movement to legalize medical marijuana in Indiana.
A lobbyist for the organization called Re-Legalize Indiana filed the paperwork to create a political action committee Monday morning.
Bill Levin wants a ban on the cultivation of marijuana to be repealed.
He said he has support from Republicans and Democrats.
“We need legislation to pass, we need, we need doctors, we need farmers, we need the whole state to get together. We're putting the package together,” said Levin.
Re-Legalize Indiana created a Facebook page three weeks ago and has almost 10,000 followers.
Thirteen states currently permit the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
