So far, three states — Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana — are looking at some options that could lead to new marijuana laws going on the books in 2020.
Although the question of whether to legalize medical marijuana in Kentucky has not been given much consideration over the past several years, the issue appears to be gaining some traction.
State Sen. Dan Neum, amidst support for marijuana legalization, told local reporters this week he used medical marijuana instead of opiates after he was diagnosed with colon cancer seven years ago.
It is speculated that hemp’s ability to make paper, fiber, plastics and even fuel was a major reason for it being banned.
Hemp is cultivated in some states legally in sanctioned programs, but is currently considered a controlled substance by the federal government.
It appears that Democrats in traditionally red states have used the idea of marijuana legalization as a key platform issue.
Marijuana legalization reform continues to pick up steam from Kentucky to California. Last week, Congress introduced a bill to remove cannabis from the Controlled Substance List.
