Last Thursday, the Kentucky House Health and Welfare Committee considered the testimony of patients and advocates, who spoke in favor of passing a medical marijuana bill. Legislators learned about the experiences of 10 families who left their support structures and home state to move to Colorado, where young patients with seizure disorders could have legal access to medical marijuana. The hearing resulted in several news reports, including this article in The Lexington Herald-Leader and this video from WKYT.


Sen. Perry Clark

Also last week, Senator Perry Clark (D-Louisville) reintroduced his medical marijuana bill for 2014. The bill number is SB 43. We are hopeful that a similar bill will soon be introduced in the Kentucky House, and that more hearings will be held on the issue in the weeks and months to come!

If you live in Kentucky, please contact your state representatives and senators today to ask them to pass this compassionate legislation!
