Courier-Journal Bluegrass Poll conducted last week found that 60% of registered Kentucky voters support making marijuana legal for medical use. Only 31% were opposed. A bill to make medical marijuana legal for certain qualifying conditions and ensure safe access for patients, S.B. 11, was introduced this session by Sen. Perry Clark.

In addition, 65% of those polled support making production of industrial hemp legal in the state. There is also a bill being considered that would allow farmers in Kentucky to cultivate hemp and take advantage of this versatile agricultural commodity.

  1. cool! I’ll be moving to Kentucky soon and I can’t wait till the first time I go into a store and LEGALLY buy my first bag of weed. It’s a day I have been waiting all my life for.

  2. Thank you, for this coverage! Our medical bill is being prevented a hearing, by the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who was a prosecutor in the past.

    Please call the Legislative Message Line at 1-800-372-7181 and tell the the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee to not only act on the bill this session, but to progress SB 11, the Gatewood Galbraith Medical Marijuana Memorial Act.
    (One can also send another message to all legislators using the hotline, just tell the operator you have another message that you want to send to all!)

    This is crucial for our state and nation! Our patients need to not fear state enforcement for benefiting from Medical Cannabis, and are in need of legal, dependable, access to this effective and safe medicine! Also a State must show some backbone in the South and get this legislation passed, I ask, which better state than ours?

    The feasibility of this is at our hands, please call, and urge others to call.
