Success is not always measured in wins and losses. Sometimes success, at least as it relates to ending the prohibition of cannabis, can be measured by the way we are able to change the conversation over a period of time. That’s what’s happening in Kentucky, as state senator Perry Clark has doubled-down on past efforts to legalize medical marijuana in the Bluegrass State by introducing Senate Bill 13, otherwise known as the “Cannabis Freedom Act”.
If passed, SB 13 would legalize the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana by any person over the age of 21. Additionally, the law would:
- Allow the personal cultivation of up to five marijuana plants.
- Allow consumption on private property with the permission of the property owner.
- Allow the transfer of one ounce or less and up to five immature cannabis plants to persons age 21 or older without any remuneration.
- Create a three-tier licensing system similar to the alcohol industry, which would separate growers, processors and retailers.
