FRANKFORT, Ky.– Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes initiated discussions about Kentucky medical marijuana legislation on Tuesday with a panel of experts and advocates. Grimes announced the effort last week.
“I came to Frankfort to help people, and there are thousands of Kentuckians who need and are begging for medical marijuana to help ease their pain,” said Grimes. “Today’s discussions were productive and informative, and we heard more from the very people medical cannabis has and will benefit. We’re here so that Kentucky’s medical cannabis legislation will be patient-centered. It shouldn’t be anything less.”
The group includes members of Kentucky’s medical community, including doctors, nurses and medical administrators, as well as representatives from law enforcement and state agencies with regulatory oversight, medical marijuana advocates and military veterans.
