One year after the state House approved a bill to legalize medical marijuana, the furthest such legislation has ever progressed in Kentucky, the years-long effort to give Kentuckians and their doctors access to cannabis took a step back in 2021. Bills that would have made Kentucky the 37th state to approve medical marijuana were introduced in both the state House and Senate, but neither was assigned to a committee. That means there were no hearings, no public testimony, and no movement. White momentum slowed in Kentucky in 2021, advocates for loosening marijuana restrictions have several wins this year, the advancement of several bills in states such as Alabama and Georgia. Furthermore, the legislation, which had 28 cosponsors, didn’t move the recent legislative session because it lacked support in the state Senate.
