Is it time to legalize medical marijuana sales in KY?

By Linda Waggener

One thing Gov. Andy Beshear said he will propose to the 2021 Kentucky General Assembly to help move Kentuckyís budget forward is the legalization of medical marijuana.

He noted this in an interview with Renee Shaw on her KET Kentucky Tonight show Monday evening. He said he feels strongly the that this is what the majority wants, and, based on what other states are doing, personally believes it's the right thing to do now.

Remembering the healthy debate over whether or not to legalize the sale of alcohol here, I'd like to know what citizens of Adair and surrounding counties think on this similar issue - make the sale of marijuana legal with medical prescriptions and ABC oversight same as alcohol sales - or donít?

Comments (signed, civil and factual) are welcome and may be shared with readers as this is studied by each of us and by our leaders in Frankfort.

She interviewed Gov. Beshear and the First Lady about his first year in office.
