RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- North Carolina medical marijuana advocates are poised to rally outside the Legislature in support of a legalization bill.

The North Carolina chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws is urging supporters to come to Raleigh on Tuesday to lobby state legislators on the issue.

The Enact Medical Cannabis Act filed by two Democratic lawmakers last week would allow state residents to possess and use small amounts of pot with a doctor's prescription. Past marijuana legalization bills haven't gone anywhere with North Carolina lawmakers and the current effort faces an uphill fight at the Republican-controlled General Assembly.
