Grimes putting together panel to write bill legalizing medical marijuana in Kentucky
FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKRC) - Kentucky secretary of state Alison Lundergan Grimes says she's putting together a panel to come up with a bill that would legalize medical marijuana.
The task force will include doctors, nurses, representatives from law enforcement, military veterans and medical marijuana advocates.
A bill is expected to be introduced in the general assembly in 2018.
Ohio, meanwhile, is in the process of awarding licenses to medical marijuana grow facilities.
