: Kentucky poised to become 38th state to legalize medical use of cannabis


Kentucky Gov.

Beshear said late Thursday. “I am thankful this progress has been made and I will proudly sign this bill into law tomorrow.” Kentucky will be the 38th state in the U.S. to legalize medical cannabis, according to Marijuana Moment. Beshear said veterans suffering from PTSD benefit from medical cannabis and that the majority of Kentuckians support it.
