Kentucky may soon be allowing medicinal marijuana in the state as a bill was just proposed to legalize medical cannabis.
A task force was assembled by Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes to introduce legislation on Thursday.
The task force, which includes members of the state’s medical community as well as military veterans and law enforcement, had been in discussions regarding the legislation.
It was last year that Grimes had said, Next year “is and must be the year when Kentucky finally steps up on medical marijuana.”
She exclaimed, “We have to get this done to help Kentuckians who are hurting.”
