Time For New Look At Marijuana

KENTUCKY:  The Kentucky General Assembly made history last week. For the first time ever a bill to legalize marijuana for medical use advanced when, on a nine to five vote, HB 350 cleared the House Health and Welfare Committee.

Also last week, the Senate Health and Welfare Committee approved SB 124 with only one no vote, to allow certain seizure patients to use an oil derived from hemp and marijuana.

Also, recently:

■ Agriculture Commissioner and likely gubernatorial candidate James Comer has made legalizing industrial hemp his cause célèbre, joined by U.S. Sens. Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell and others. Comer announced plans for pilot hemp research projects shortly after the new federal farm bill became law, allowing them to establish hemp research programs for the first time in decades.

■ In a recent poll, 52 percent of Kentucky voters said they are ready to legalize medical marijuana.
