***PLEASE READ
AND REPOST AND/OR FORWARD TO AS MANY PEOPLE IN KENTUCKY AS
POSSIBLE. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!

PLEASE
BE ADVISED
RESIDENTS OF THE STATE OF
KENTUCKY!

KENTUCKY residents interested in marijuana
reform, PLEASE step forward!
Please be advised that I
would like to put together a "group" of citizens in Kentucky
that are interested in Marijuana reform, into an "email
list".

***There will be NO ILLEGAL activities taking
place on this email list, And NO ONE under the age of 18 may
be added to this list nor respond to any email initiating from
this list!***

This would be an email list to forward
educational material on marijuana/cannabis or hemp, and
information on the laws, the views (pro and con) of the
general KY population. What could (or could not) be done to
begin to change the law in Kentucky to accomodate a
"compassionate use act" of sorts, for medical patients in need
of this herb (and it IS a plant!) to aid in their healthcare –
whether it be for "pain" or other symptoms, and also to allow
physicians to be able to "talk" to their patients about the
use of this plant, IF they feel personally and professionally
that it would be of benefit to the patient. As well as giving
the patient’s the ability to talk with their physicians about
their own current use, if applicable, at the time.

The
state of Kentucky has for too long been oblivient to the
changes evolving around them in other states regarding the
"medical marijuana law".

In letters to KY government
officials I have received the following
replies:

12/15/06 Mitch McConnell, Senator; replied:
… "While I am pleased the federal government is able to
provide financial aid programs to help students attend
college, it is important to REMEMBER THAT THESE RESOURCES ARE
LIMITED. In an effort to ensure that these limited resources
to to those students in greatest need, Congress has
established conditions on a student’s eligibility for this
aid. ONE CONDITION THAT I SUPPORT LIMITS THE ELIGIBILITY FOR
FEDERAL FINANCIAL AID FOR THOSE STUDENTS CONVICTED OF A DRUG
OFFENSE"…

On 07/07/06, Congresswoman Anne Northup
responded with the following: …According to the National
Institutes of Health, marijuana is a "gateway" drug, which
means thtat those individuals who smoke marijuana are more
likely to try more dangerous drugs like crack, cocaine or even
heroine…Marijuana itself is a drug which causes judgment
impairment and can be harmful to human health. …I must admit
that I do not see marijuana use as a viable option for pain
management for the terminally ill. In fact, I voted with the
majority of my colleagues in 1998 to pass H.J. Res. 117 which
declared that Congress was unequivocally opposed to legalizing
marijuana for medicinal use. The resolution, which also urged
defeat of state initiatives to legalize medicinal marijuana
use, overwhelmingly passed the U.S. House of Representatives
by a vote of 310-93. …

On 10/24/07 Congressman John A
Yarmuth responded…"While I VOTED IN FAVOR of the Hinchey
amendment to protect medical privacy and the doctor-patient
relationship, it UNFORTUNATELY FAILED by a vote of 262-165.
Please be assured, however, that I will continue to closely
monitor this issue and keep your views in mind.."

There is an election this year! It will be a lot of
hard work to get through to the legislature of Kentucky…and
it won’t be done overnight. That is why I am anxious to get
started. The sooner the Kentucky government realizes that WE
are out here and want to be heard, the sooner we will be
recognized. Remember, every generation has its war! And it
seems as though we are having more than one to deal
with!

The following are websites that contain a lot of
information about this subject. I encourage you to visit these
sights and research the information yourself. Then if you
decide that this is something that our generation needs to
fight for, send me an email with "add me" in the subject line.
You may also include any comments or questions you may have
about the subject. I will respond to let you know you have
been
added!

One thought on “KENTUCKY MEDICAL MARIJUANA PROJECT

  1. I to agree that marijuana needs to be legalized not only in this stae but in the country as a whole.As far as KY og’s they really don’t even have any type of a viable pprogram for trying to legalize it for medicinaluse at all.It is this states number one cash crop and has been for well over 1 decade.It’s medicinal uses are second to none which have been proven not only here but all over the world so you know everybody is not wrong.I take morphine,loratab 10’s tranqs,sedatives among a host of other meds and I have found that marijauna out performs all of these drugs much better without any type of bad side effects.Many others agree with htis,not just me.TAx revenues would fix this states many financial problems easily within 1 year of legalization.All in all though it isd one of the perfect answers to many of the states problems both finacial as well aS DRUG USE AS IT WOULD DROP THE NUMBER OF THOSE WHO USE METH,COCAINE,HERON,PRESCRIPTION PAIN PILLS TO NAME A FEW OF THE REALLY BAD DRUGS.wE REALLY DO NEED TO MAKE IT LEGAL AT LEAST FOR MEDICINAL USE
