Members Of Kentucky Legislature Join Patients, Activists, And Business Leaders To Lobby Marijuana Decriminalization and a Medical Marijuana Program
Decriminalizing cannabis possession would also have practical benefits, such as freeing up law enforcement resources and saving taxpayer money currently being wasted on the prosecution and incarceration of individuals for possession of small amounts of marijuana. Legalizing and regulating medical or adult-use cannabis would also create new economic opportunities and generate tax revenue, as well as create jobs and a new above ground cannabis industry.
In addition, there is a growing body of evidence showing that cannabis has been shown to have a number of medicinal benefits, and allowing access in Kentucky would bring these potential benefits to patients across the state.
