Kentucky lawmakers will hold an informational hearing on Wednesday, August 21, at 12 pm to discuss the issue of legalizing the therapeutic use of cannabis. The hearing will set the stage for a serious legislative push to legalize the plant in 2014. It will be held at the Capitol Annex building, 700 Capitol Avenue Loop, Frankfort, KY 40601, in room 129.
An August 2013 Kentucky Health Issues Poll revealed that 78 percent of Kentucky residents support legalizing the medical use of marijuana.
