Any Kentuckian who has a valid medical marijuana card and purchases marijuana from another state where it is legal will not face criminal charges in Kentucky. On Sunday, Gov. Andy Beshear’s executive order permitting the legal purchase of medical marijuana by Kentuckians went into effect.
Patients in the Bluegrass State who have been approved to purchase medical marijuana from another state where it is legal will not face criminal charges in Kentucky. The maximum weight for that item is 8 ounces. “I simply could not stand by and watch as another veteran took his or her own life.
I just couldn’t stand by and watch someone another become dependent on opioids “That’s what Beshear had to say. We had to take action to alleviate suffering as much as possible and, perhaps, to motivate the General Assembly to do its duty
Qualified Kentuckians are all that is needed to keep a receipt under the directive. Activists are calling it a “huge step in the right way,” but they’re also trying to get lawmakers to do more by talking about how personally invested they are in the problem.
Julie Cantwell, the co-founder of Kentucky Mothers for Medical Cannabis, has said that her son Preston has drug-resistant epilepsy and has been legally utilizing medical marijuana from another state for the past three years.
She reported that before he began taking the medication, her son was having as many as 200 seizures each day. According to Beshear, palm cards have been distributed to law enforcement personnel around the state. The cards will inform law enforcement of the specific conditions under which a traveler is permitted to possess medical marijuana.
