The time for debating the merits of medical marijuana is over, according to Kentucky Rep. Jason Nemes (R), who wants to legalize medicinal cannabis to help droves of patients in the Bluegrass State.
“This is not some kind of a debate. This is about people in Kentucky who are hurting,” Rep. Nemes told WDRB News recently.
Those people include Cassie Everett to Louisville, who has been battling epilepsy since age 11. Dealing with epilepsy has resulted in a growing list of prescriptions over the years as her condition worsens with age.
