Kentucky Advisory Panel Reports Strong Support For Legalizing Medical Cannabis

A panel established by Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear to advise him on improving access to medical marijuana has received overwhelming support for the legalization of medicinal cannabis from residents of the state. On Friday, Beshear said that the Team Kentucky Medical Cannabis Advisory Committee found that many Kentuckians who suffer from chronic medical conditions are not being helped by traditional painkillers and fear the possibility of addiction posed by opioids. Kentucky is one of 10 states that permit patients to use low-THC cannabis oil, but more potent marijuana products are still prohibited by law.

“Polling suggests 90% of Kentucky adults support legalizing medical cannabis. Our team traveled the state to talk directly to Kentuckians, and they found our people do indeed overwhelmingly support it,” Beshear said in a statement from the governor’s office on Friday.
