Governor Andy Beshear has announced he is taking action on the marijuana issue in Kentucky.
The effort for a medical marijuana bill once again failed in Kentucky during the 2022 session of the General Assembly. The bill passed the House but wasn’t taken up by the Senate.
Senate President Robert Stivers said some lawmakers wanted to see more research on the matter.
More Americans want marijuana legalized in their states.
During his Team Kentucky Update on Thursday, Gov. Beshear announced he is taking steps toward moving the medical marijuana conversation forward in the commonwealth.
He told reporters his drive to legalize medical marijuana is not about politics, but his desire to do what he feels is right.
