The Future Of Medical Marijuana In Kentucky

medical marijuana

Twenty-one states have legalized marijuana for medical use. Now Kentucky is debating medicinal marijuana. Public support is growing in Kentucky and legislation made it out of a House committee in this year's General Assembly session. Now the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky is hosting a public forum to answer questions on medical marijuana.

The conference, Medical Marijuana in Kentucky, on Sept. 23 in Lexington, will have experts on all sides of the issue. The conference will explore the public health implications of allowing medical marijuana in the state.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the conference are Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky CEO Ben Chandler; former Colorado "Marijuana Czar" Andrew Freedman; and Kentucky Representative and Northern Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy Director Kim Moser.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
