BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Could this be the year Louisiana makes marijuana legal?

"I think we'll start to see a discussion about it," said Rebecca Wright, President of the Louisiana Cannabis Coalition. "We have to. We have no choice. Based on our economy and the way the rest of our society is changing they have to face it."

The group was at the Capitol for the first day of session, hoping to raise awareness for their cause.

There are seven bills on the table that deal with pot including legalizing medical marijuana and eliminating felony possession.
