KENTUCKY MARIJUANA PARTY IS AIMING FOR KENTUCKY TO BE THE FIRST STATE TO REPEAL AND NULLIFY CANNABIS/HEMP PROHIBITION AND BRING THE ETERNAL FREEDOM OF THE CANNABIS/HEMP PLANT "HOME TO KENTUCKY"!
Although the USMJParty is a "REPEAL" Party, we do not wish to stand in the way of Patient's needing Cannabis as treatment for their illnesses. For this reason we will SUPPORT change in Kentucky law to provide a "safe Haven" for Patient's consumption of Cannabis in any form as medicine. Of note, there is a little known law called "The lesser of two evils" that can be made to apply to these situations. However, this entails a Court battle which Patient's should not have to go thru in their time of need. Here is a LINK to this information on WIKI.
This defense was used successfully by Gatewood Galbraith on several occasions. The ultimate goal MUST remain REPEAL and Nullify Cannabis Prohibition thru the United Nations and our U.S. Federal Government. The "Legalization" laws which have been passed to date, particularly "recreational use" in Washington State and Colorado are a "legal" way within a State to have commerce with an illegal substance. And I quote from the U.N. "…”The growing illegal economy supports and enables corrupt officials, criminals, terrorists, and insurgents to mingle and conduct business with another. We must build our own networks to fight these illicit networks and break their corruptible influence…” Bearing this in mind, the ONLY way to truly break free from the "Drug War" is to go backwards, and REPEAL these laws which where put in place to benefit the Corporate/Industrial Revolution. Until we accomplish this, we will never be free from prosecution for using this plant. And it does not just encompass "Cannabis" but many other plants as well. The "Legalization" rush is on. And just as the Cannabis Businesses are pushing forward, so will the policing of the businesses. They will continue to fill our jails and prisons with laws written just for Cannabis user's whether they be "legal" or not. In the meantime, while we fight for the freedom of Cannabis user's let God keep our Patient's safe from undue harm by the corruption of our own
Government and it's war upon God's plant.
May the Lord Bless You and Keep You,
FRANKFORT – Kentucky farmers can grow hemp, and now Kentucky doctors can use it for medicine.
Gov. Steve Beshear signed into law on Thursday a bill that allows doctors at two Kentucky research hospitals to prescribe cannabidiol to treat patients. The oil gets a lot of attention because it comes from marijuana plants. But Kentucky plans to get its supply from industrial hemp crops that at least seven Kentucky farmers plan to plant next month.
The bill Beshear signed comes one year after the Kentucky legislature laid the groundwork for the state to begin growing hemp again - marijuana’s less potent cousin that once thrived in Kentucky before it was banned.
The federal farm bill - signed into law in February - allows states to grow hemp for research purposes. Next month, at least seven Kentucky farmers plan to plant hemp for various pilot projects in partnership with Kentucky research universities, according to Holly Harris VonLuehrte, chief of staff for Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer. Those projects include medical research.
Supporters of the bill note that cannabidiol has been particularly effective in treating seizures in children. That’s one of the main reasons state Sen. Julie Denton, R-Louisville, sponsored the bill. Denton has a daughter who once suffered from epilepsy.
“People were having to move out of our state to go and live in Colorado or California just so they could get this. I thought that was crazy,” Denton said. “If it’s really great, we should have that available for our folks here in Kentucky.”
The law is effective immediately. But don’t expect Kentucky doctors to begin writing prescriptions. The law limits prescriptions only to doctors at the University of Louisville and University of Kentucky research hospitals. Gary Mans, a University of Louisville spokesman, said doctors are just beginning to discuss when, how often and in what dosages to prescribe cannabidiol.
“I am confident that this law will provide the relief that these families seek, without creating complications for our law enforcement community,” Beshear said in a news release.
Denton said the law should not be misconstrued as a precursor to recreational marijuana use in Kentucky. But she said it could lead to laws allowing Kentucky research hospitals to study medical marijuana.
