Kentucky House Judiciary Committee advances medical cannabis bill!
Seriously ill Kentuckians have been waiting long enough — urge your state legislators to support HB 136!
Today, Kentucky’s House Judiciary Committee voted 17-1 to pass HB 136, a bill that would legalize cannabis for medical use. Next the bill will proceed to the full House, where it is expected to receive a vote soon.
Fifty-one of Kentucky’s 100 state representatives are cosponsors of HB 136, and Gov. Andy Beshear has indicated that he strongly supports medical cannabis.
However, some Senate leaders remain opposed, so the challenge for advocates will be getting a bill through both chambers of the legislature and to the governor’s desk.
It’s critical that legislators hear from their constituents who support medical cannabis. After you write your legislators, please share this message with your friends and family.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT HB136 IS A NON SMOKABLE NON GROWABLE BILL! IT IS STRICTLY FOR MEDICAL CONSUMPTION ONLY!

“to establish limits on the THC content of medicinal marijuana that can be produced or sold in the state”
