The state of Kentucky woke up to good news this past Friday! Kentucky House approved the Bill 136 on March 17th, which makes the use of medicinal cannabis legal in the state; despite the republican majority from the House of Representatives, the bill passed with a great approval number: 59 in favor and 34 against.
The measure is still pending the approval from the Senate, but it all points to cannabis being legalized in one more state soon enough.
The proposal is being led by Congressman Jason Nemes, who has previously forwarded similar proposals to the Congress.
The bill alone is quite exciting and revolutionary, but it encompasses a series of restrictions.
As the substance remains illegal on a federal level, some names at the House of Representatives still have reservations regarding the bill.
According to the initiative, doctors who prescribe cannabis will only sign off on specific and selected diseases such as cancer, epilepsy, chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, chronic nausea, cyclical vomiting, and PTSD.
