Proposed Bill For Clinical Trials For Medical Marijuana In Kentucky
Senator Denise Harper Angel, D-Louisville, filed a bill that is attempting to get clinical trials set up to study the medicinal benefits of medical marijuana. Senate Bill 236, would commandeer funding for clinical trials. The bill pulls funds from Kentucky Access, which is a health insurance program for high-risk patients that is winding down because of the new health benefit exchange being in place. If the bill is successful clinical health trials could begin in March 31, 2015.
