HB 136 Sponsored by Rep. Nemes as passed the Judiciary Committee with a 17-1 vote. It is not a perfect bill and prevents the ability to smoke marijuana for medical purposes, but it is a start, a foot in the door to getting Kentuckians better natural health alternatives to pain relief and more. For far to long people have had suffer and deal with the addiction and complications of prescription pain killers. Often times people of all ages and other demographics had to put themselves at risk in braking the law in order to obtain marijuana as a last resort for their loved ones, they should not have to be in that situation. Marijuana has been proven to help those going through cancer treatment fighting nausea, allowing them to eat and keep food in their system, thus allowing them to keep their strength up to fight the cancer and take the treatment that wears on them at the same time.
This year looks promising, but it has looked so in the past, so we need everyone calling the Legislative Hotline at 5002-564-8100 or 1-800-372-7181 and tell your Repesentative, and all House Leadership to support HB 136, allow medical marijuana in Kentucky and end people's suffering.
