Election Follow-Up and Volunteers Needed
Things are moving fast around the county and Kentucky needs to catch up. I’ve provided some updates on the changes in marijuana laws made in the November 8th election and, more importantly, what we need to do in Kentucky.
The legislative session begins January 3 in Frankfort and we need to make our voices heard. You will be amazed how something as simple as a 10 minute visit with your Representative or Senator can impact their views. Since so few constituents actually do request that 10 minute chat, legislators really do listen to what they say.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR LOBBYING EFFORTS
We need volunteers to help us with lobbying efforts in Frankfort. We will need people throughout the state to make a difference. If you are interested, please email Ben@LegalizeKentuckyNow.com to get the process started and find out how you can help bring cannabis to Kentucky.
POST ELECTION RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA STATES
Recreational marijuana had a few big wins in three state elections: 1) California; 2) Nevada; and 3) Massachusetts. This makes the total number of recreational states 7! (The other 4 states are Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska.) This is good precedent for the rest of the country as many medical programs have been expanded and new ones created in fledgling states.
MARIJUANA AFTER THE ELECTION
There were 24 medical marijuana states before the election and now we have 28. Five different states passed some marijuana imitative either updating or passing new laws. New legislation was passed in the following states: Florida, Arkansas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and North Dakota. This is good news for Kentucky! We have both a neighboring state and southern states showing progress.
