Is Kentucky next to legalize medical marijuana? Polls say yes

By Micki Hogan     Feb 25, 2013 in Politics
A new poll shows that the residents of the state of Kentucky overwhelmingly approve of medical marijuana laws being passed in the state.
The recent poll taken in Kentucky shows that not only do the residents approve of medical cannabis, they would also like the return of hemp farming in the state. The poll was given by SurveyUSA and it states that over 60 percent of Kentucky's residents would like to see cannabis legalized for medical purposes. Only 31 percent opposed the idea.
When it came to the legalization of industrial hemp and allowing farmers to grow the crop; the poll indicated 65 percent approved the idea and only 22 percent of residents were opposed to the idea. Although both hemp and medical marijuana were overwhelmingly approved by residents of Kentucky; when it came to recreational use of the plant the majority of the state were opposed even though the vote was tight.
Kentucky Senators Rand Paul (R) and Mitch McConnell (R), have been working to legalize the crop including the legalization of hemp.
As reported by we will have to wait to see if the residents of Kentucky will be voting on medical marijuana and hemp on the next ballot.
