KENTUCKY: Legislation would allow people with debilitating medical conditions to access and use medical marijuana without fear of arrest.
A bill that would allow seriously ill Kentuckians to use medical marijuana with a doctor’s recommendation was introduced in the House of Representatives last week.
The Cannabis Compassion Act, or HB 350, was introduced by long-time lawmaker and registered nurse Rep. Mary Lou Marzian (D-Louisville).
It is very similar to SB 43, which was introduced in the Senate by Sen. Perry Clark (D-Louisville) earlier this year.
The bill is the first effective medical marijuana bill ever to be introduced in the Kentucky House of Representatives.
