Ky. House Speaker: Vote On Medical Marijuana Bill Possible Next Week

Feb 14, 2020


  Kentucky House Speaker David Osborne said a bill to legalize medical marijuana for some medical conditions could come up for a House vote as soon as next week.

The measure cleared the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. A lead sponsor, Republican Representative Jason Nemes said he predicts it will pass the House handily. Osborne says the House Republicans will gauge support when the legislature reconvenes Tuesday. Under the bill, a regulatory board would determine what conditions would qualify for doctors to prescribe marijuana to patients.
