Medical marijuana bill sponsor believes legislation has a better chance to pass in 2018
FRANKFORT — State Sen. Morgan McGarvey told members of the Interim Joint Committee on Health and Welfare and Family Services on Wednesday that it’s time for Kentucky to allow “medically necessary marijuana” for individuals who are cancer patients and afflicted with end-of-life illnesses to ease their pain.
McGarvey, who filed Senate Bill 243 during the 2017 session that called for allowing the use of marijuana for palliative or end-of-life care, told legislators that the bill is not about opening the door for the future legalization of recreational marijuana.
“This bill is not an attempt to provide marijuana to a large swath of Kentuckians who don’t have legitimate medical problems,” said McGarvey, D-Louisville.
