US (KY): "Bill to legalize medical cannabis appears dead"

A bill to legalize medical cannabis in Kentucky appears to be dead for the 2022 session of the General Assembly. The measure won approval in the House, but the Senate hasn’t brought it up for a vote.

Advocates like Julie Cantwell say they’re furious. She says her son used to have 100 small seizures every day. Now, with help from out-of-state medical cannabis, she says he’s been seizure-free for 29 months.

“We’ll do whatever we have to do, but we will help our sick children. They need this,” said Cantwell. “We’ve got 37 other states that know that this is medicine. It’s time for Kentucky to get on board.”

Senate President Robert Stivers said he wants to see more testing before moving the bill forward.
