Well-Known Member
The governor of Kentucky has signed a bill to legalize marijuana, making the state the 38th in the U.S. to enact the reform.

Here’s what SB 47 will accomplish:

Patients with recommendations from doctors or advanced nurse practitioners can qualify to use cannabis if they have cancer, severe pain, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, muscle spasms or spasticity, chronic nausea or cyclical vomiting, post-traumatic stress disorder or any other medical condition or disease which the Kentucky Center for Cannabis deems appropriate.

Smoking marijuana will be prohibited, but patients can still access raw cannabis for vaporization.

Home cultivation will not be allowed.

Patients can possess a 30-day supply of cannabis in their residence and a 10-day supply on their person.

Patient registration will only last up to 60 days, and the initial visit must be in person.

There will be a 35 percent THC cap on flower marijuana products and 70 percent cap for concentrates. Edibles cannot exceed 10 milligrams per serving.

Medical cannabis will be exempt from sales and excise taxes.

The Cabinet for Health and Family Services will be charged with overseeing the program, including setting regulations and issuing business licenses.

License categories include three tiers of cultivators as well as producers, processors, safety compliance facilities and dispensaries.

Local governments can opt out of allowing cannabis businesses to operate, but citizens can petition to have their municipalities opt back in.

A nine-member Board of Physicians and Advisors will be created consisting of seven physicians and two advanced nurse practitioners.

Regulations will need to be finalized by January 1, 2024.

The state Board of Physicians and State Board of Nursing will be responsible for certifying practitioners to recommend cannabis.

Couldn't they have made it more difficult than that? Like maybe
if you look at it wrong, 10 years to life? Maybe the death sentence
for toking? Gotta be some way to continue to ruin lives of brown people, while
still looking like, "Well, what, KY legalized. What's your problem?"

What a bunch of crooks, fuck em cause their actions just show it’s not an option of doing what’s right. The logical and demand for such is there and they can’t act like keeping something punishable by jail time is okay. If anything they promote it and want this high % of cannabis growers/sellers to take a huge profitable % of making someone who isn’t a criminal in such. What a disgrace
