KY House Bill 136 would legalize medical marijuana

Kentucky Representatives introduced House Bill 136 last week as a first step toward decriminalizing medical cannabis in Kentucky. The bill would, among other things, require the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to become the Department of Alcoholic Beverage and Cannabis Control and to implement and regulate a medicinal cannabis program in Kentucky. The bill is currently in committee.

Sponsors of the bill include Jason Nemes (R), Al Gentry (D), William Lawrence (R), Robert Goforth (R), Derek Lewis (R), and Patti Minter (D).
