Kentucky to Consider Medical Marijuana Bill in 2013

A medical marijuana bill has been pre-filed in the Kentucky legislature for its 2013 session, reports. Senate Bill 11 was filed early to get a head start in building support for it. The bill would permit people with serious medical conditions such as HIV/AIDS, cancer and multiple sclerosis to use marijuana to help them manage their symptoms. A doctor’s recommendation would be required. The bill would create a network of state-regulated dispensaries and also allow patients to grow their own marijuana. The legislative session begins January 2.

This is interesting for I support Med Pot, however again as in ARV, what is the right doses for each person, which I think science hear in califorina is working on some guild lines and the food is becoming grade A. The other side of the policy I belive the cigerette folks are bitting at the bit to make it legal, you know the Grand Oh Party, for when they see a buck and lots of coins their policy papers change, like stop the drug wars legalize Pot. Hum.The South is known to grow some great Tobace
