Kentucky House Judiciary Committee advances medical cannabis bill!
Seriously ill Kentuckians have been waiting long enough — urge your state legislators to support HB 136!
Today, Kentucky’s House Judiciary Committee voted 17-1 to pass HB 136, a bill that would legalize cannabis for medical use. Next the bill will proceed to the full House, where it is expected to receive a vote soon.
Please write your legislators today and urge them to pass this compassionate legislation!
Fifty-one of Kentucky’s 100 state representatives are cosponsors of HB 136, and Gov. Andy Beshear has indicated that he strongly supports medical cannabis.
However, some Senate leaders remain opposed, so the challenge for advocates will be getting a bill through both chambers of the legislature and to the governor’s desk.
It’s critical that legislators hear from their constituents who support medical cannabis. After you write your legislators, please share this message with your friends and family.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT HB136 IS A NON SMOKABLE NON GROWABLE BILL! IT IS STRICTLY FOR MEDICAL CONSUMPTION ONLY!
“to prohibit smoking of medicinal marijuana;”
“to establish limits on the THC content of medicinal marijuana that can be produced or sold in the state”
“to exempt certain records and information from the disclosure under the Kentucky Open Records Act;”
“to permit an employer to restrict the possession and use of medicinal marijuana by an employee;”
“to allow for possession, growth, use, processing, purchasing, transfer, and consumption of cannabis;”
“to establish provisions for personal cultivation;”
“to establish provisions for palliative or therapeutic use of cannabis by persons under the age of 21;”
Rainbow Farm was located in Vandalia, Michigan & was a cannabis friendly community. They had great concerts & speakers. The government came in later & killed the owners & stole the farm from the legal birth right of the son, Robert, 1 week before 9-11 (September 3rd & 4th,2001). Tom Crosslin & Rollie Rolhm were the owners & each one of them were systematically gunned down & tortured after being out numbered 300 to 1. In order to stop a memorial day concert, that was to start a signature campaign to legalize cannabis in the state of Michigan.
The Country as a whole has come a long way since the incident above in 2001, but it still has a very long way to go. We have 11 “legalized States” and 33 “medicinal States” to date according to NORML. More than the majority of Americans believe it should be made “lawful”. Many sick people including children are suffering needlessly and we have the ability to help rectify the situation.
We should not still have to be going to the Capital in Frankfort to beg for something that we should have had in Kentucky more than seven years ago. In fact, it never should have been “unlawful” to possess in the first place.
Gatewood Galbraith, “The greatest Governor that Kentucky never had”, spoke to this issue many times and had he been elected we would not still be in this same fight today. He said, “You have got to get political. Because if you don’t get political then I’m gonna die in the streets!”
The number of people who are dying in the streets has exponentially increased in the past 5+ years in earnest. The crisis was started by the Government and their Pharmaceutical cronies who promoted highly addictive opioid drugs for daily use to patients who were suffering and they bit the bait. After everyone was sufficiently addicted to the pharmaceuticals the Government claimed an “opioid crisis” and immediately withdrew these needed medications by way of intimidating the Physicians and forced drug testing to the point that the Medical Establishment could no longer take the chance of losing their Practice’s, and so they immediately withdrew needed medicines from Patients who legitimately needed them, as well as other’s who had become addicted for other reasons – and there are many reasons… This in turn caused people to literally die in the streets due to a dire need to medicate and the ample supply in the streets of much more potent and deadly drugs than what the Physicians had been prescribing them to begin with.
Some of us were strong enough and smart enough to turn to Cannabis which saved our lives, even though it is illegal. A lot of us have lost close friends and family members to this ‘war on drugs’. Many of us grieve daily because of it.
There have been Senators, Representatives and Citizen Activists, working hard to see Cannabis regulation and lawfulness is passed in the very State that in WWII the Government pleaded with people to grow Hemp for their War efforts. The people responded to their requests in a time of need. However, the Government turns their heads the other way when the Citizens request that they help them establish a safe and lawful way to use Cannabis, medically and otherwise. Not only would this help the multitudes of patients who direly need this medication, it would also establish a lawful product that can be taxed and used for the greater good of the State we reside in, including new businesses and employment. As a result, even those who chose not to partake in Cannabis would benefit from the legalization and taxation of the product – much like alcohol – with much less lawlessness than alcohol promotes…
It would establish a lawful alternative to Alcohol and Tobacco and other illicit drugs, such as street level opioids which are destroying families and responsible for unending deaths even as we speak. Yet, to date, our Kentucky Government has refused to act upon this issue.
Why has Kentucky Government taken such a path in governing of the people?
For a more in-depth read on why and how our Country has fell into the hands of the NWO you can view this LINK. “The Elkhorn Manifesto” is an archived page of the Kentucky Marijuana Party, written in 1996 by R. William Davis, and collaborated with Gatewood Galbraith.
Here we are, once again, in the year of Our Lord, 2019, begging for our leaders to hear our plea’s. And once again, they will try to ignore us!
As far as I am concerned, the lawfulness of Cannabis should first have been rightfully returned to the people through REPEAL of Federal Treaties and Statutes which made it unlawful to begin with. Possibly as far back as the 1914 Harrison Narcotics Tax Act. However, the situation has been taken into the hands of the individual States and their “States Rights” because the Federal Government refused to stand up for the rights of our people. Instead they have enlisted a “New World Order” to do their dirty work which seeks to contain society at large – world wide control of the masses, control of all plants, food, medicines, WATER, etc., to be placed under strict guidelines to which we must abide by the rules or suffer the consequences.
We have become damned if we do submit to the law and damned if we do not follow it as well.
There is research already out there and patients are being helped and in some cases literally saved from an early death by using Cannabis. Many people have been saved from addiction by using Cannabis.
We cannot wait another year to change the Cannabis Statutes in Kentucky. We need it now. We needed it 20 years ago.
There are currently two Bills in Kentucky Legislature – one in Senate and one in the House. Both bills should be passed and this is my reasoning for this:
SB 80 / Dan Malano Seum / Establishes the “Department of Cannabis Control” which will oversee lawful consumption of Cannabis in Kentucky by adults 21 and over. This Bill gives limited and controlled freedom back to the people in that it does allow for growing on our own property and consumption as well as sets the stage for business to be lawful throughout Kentucky. This legislation could be enacted fairly quickly and jumpstart the economy here. It is imperative that we implement this legislation this year if we seek to make our State livable again.
HB 136 / Establishes a very strict “Medical Cannabis” bill for bonified Patients. Because of the nature of illnesses and the fact that many Children could be served by this Bill it is imperative that “medicinal Cannabis” be made available in Kentucky to those who are in need, medically, whether they be adult or child. Many people who are not familiar with Cannabis and it’s use would serve to be protected as patients by this medical legislation. The problem is that with the measures necessary to comply with the Bill as it is written it would most certainly be a slow process to set up across the State and reach all patients equally. However, we should proceed immediately on this Act as well.
Additionally, a drug-free workplace Bill for the use of legal Hemp CBD products, currently sold on the open market:
SB 83 / Perry B. Clark “Shauna’s Law” Relating to a drug free workplace / Seeks to mandate an appeals process for those employer’s who enforce drug-testing upon their employee’s which will address those persons who have been found in violation of the drug-free workplace policy by testing positive on random drug screens for legal Hemp products such as CBD. It would set aside that violation if proven that a legal product had been used. This Bill must be passed in order to preserve the integrity of the Hemp market as well as employee’s rights.
IF our Legislator’s and Governor do not seek to enact the Bill’s which we as a People have requested for our health and well-being in general, then the political system of the Commonwealth of Kentucky needs to be immediately and completely changed and replaced. This would also include other issues of great importance in Kentucky such as the Pension Crisis.
The corruption in Kentucky runs far and wide and seeks to be ended this year. The time is now for change…not later. We cannot wait another year to be lawful!

Opinions: “Pot should stay illegal in Kentucky”
From: Rev. Mary L. Thomas-Spears, Bowling Green, Kentucky 42101
Dear “Pot should stay illegal in Kentucky”,
That was all like a bad scene straight out of Reefer Madness, or the equivalent of BS propaganda. Yet all very well said for a pot dealer???!
I couldn’t help but notice you did not bother to take the time to sign your name or to take any credit for that medieval excrement – Your opinion which you felt so valuable. It would cut into your profit margin if you had to suddenly become legitimate, wouldn’t it?
If Marijuana/Pot/Cannabis Prohibition was repealed in Kentucky and/or the U.S. it would put the pot dealer in the Black Market out of business and you wouldn’t be working for the FDA’s DEA anymore.
After all, Congress was only given authority over Currency, Foreign War and the market place, which is why they created “Prohibition”, to control and divide the market place, in order to maximize their profit margins, through supply and demand, and the Black Market they claim to be fighting against while in essence owning it. So you work for them, right?
Opinions like yours are in fact, proof, that “opinions are like a$$holes… They are undeniable evidence of the disgusting amount of (or level of) illiteracy and mis-education, or as Dr. Gupta put it, “brainwashing”, on the highest levels, within and outside of the Commonwealth, in my opinion.
We can thank William Randolf Hearst and his desire to print the news on wooden paper, as he owned millions of acres of trees for creating the propaganda and printing it on to begin with, and all these years later, despite all the published facts, research, science and truth to the contrary of this Marijuana Madness propaganda, we can thank you for attempting to continue the BS.
After all, up until then all of our news was printed on Hemp (= Cannabis Sativa L = Marijuana).
I am sure if my friend, colleague, mentor and Attorney, Gatewood Galbraith were here today in the flesh he would agree with me on everything I have said or will say. While adding a few colorful comments or opinions of his own, of course, like,
“I wish all you would stop getting high long enough to read my book!” “I’d even give you a free copy so that you might educate yourselves on the fact that Marijuana is already legal, as I explained to Greg Stumbo!”
It all comes down to understanding the words and their legal meanings, the Constitution and your Rights and Freedoms along with precedence of Rulings handed down by the Supreme Court like Leary vs. The United States, as I explained in “Last Free Man in America meets the synthetic subversions”.
In his book he also explains that ending Marijuana Prohibition in Kentucky would save the Commonwealth approximately $500 Million Dollars and year, just in healthcare and related costs alone.
The actual figures coming in from other States who have already passed similar laws are in fact very favorable as well as being in support of Gatewood’s estimate or prediction.
Gatewood Galbraith also explains in his book that Marijuana, like Ibogaine (which is also prohibited in the U.S.), is known to, in fact, break addiction. Evidence that Y(our) Government is not against addiction or are not fighting addiction as them claim they are.
After all, the market place functions on supply and demand and addiction fuels or increases the demand, therefore increasing the profits. This is why they have prohibited both of these plants in the U.S. As former President Bush said without a flinch “We are a Nation addicted to gasoline”. So why haven’t they prohibited possession of gasoline? After all, how many have died throughout the last year alone huffing it or consuming it? Or as a result of crashes?
Yet, it is a controlled substance like Marijuana, controlled through taxation, which recognizes the substance as legal and through the Tax with which it is controlled under (= 1937 Marijuana Tax Act), did just that (legalize), despite it having been repealed by Leary v. United States, in the Supreme Court, on the Federal level, in a ruling that agreed that He (= We, have a divine, inalienable, sovereign, natural right and freedom to utilize Marijuana), (Marijuana = Cannabis Sativa L “untaxed”).
The Commonwealth of Kentucky has passed its own Marijuana Tax Stamp Laws – Legalizing thru taxation.
WHY??? Why would people of any State pass a law, or vote in a law to pay the State or a Commonwealth to tax them for a right or freedom that has already been granted to them by not only Divine authority but by the highest Court in the land on the highest level? While basically declaring themselves as Federal informants to a Government who has already abused it’s power and authority by passing not one, but two illegal and unconstitutional Acts of Congress (= the CSA or Controlled Substance Act).
All of this is a part of the “Synthetic Subversion” or war on plants and nature (not just Marijuana), as Corporations like Monsanto and Dupont scramble to own ALL OF THE SEED through Patents and GMO’s (genetically modified organism).
For all of those who still believe that Marijuana (= Cannabis Sativa L) was only prohibited because they couldn’t Patent the plant – Your wrong! You have forgotten about the Corn, Soy Beans, and Wheat as well as all the farm’s and Farmer’s who have been lost to Lawsuits and suicides connected to “who is growing who’s seed in who’s fields throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The main reason for prohibition is all the legal lies (= Legalization)which openly mandates and sanctions their authority to prohibit in the first place, allowing them to Patent and own all the rights, while controlling the market place, which they now own, or rule, therefore controlling all of the profits while also allowing them to control the nature of the plant.
Keep in mind, THC is the active part of the plant that causes a plant to be labeled as Marijuana, which is also the natural sunscreen of any Cannabis Sativa L plant.
HEMP, which starts out as Cannabis Sativa L in the wild, has now been legally defined by the amount of THC it contains (or doesn’t contain). This seed can now be controlled with a THC stopper gene, via GMO and we can promise that an entire crop growing in any field, no matter how much sunlight it receives, will, for that season, remain HEMP in the field, no matter where the field is, thus, controlling the harvest. (In nature, the amount of Sunlight a plant receives determines the amount of THC in any given Cannabis Sativa L plant).
Keep in mind, Cannabis Sativa L., blows in the wind like corn when it pollinates.
By moving all of the Marijuana grows indoors, these same chemical Companies and Corporations that have prohibited Cannabis/Marijuana in the first place through the lobby of Congress, are the same ones that supply big Pharma, are the same ones that make chemical weapons for war, are the same ones controlling our crops and food supply, and can NOW not only control all the seed, they can sell you chemical fertilizers and growing equipment for medical Cannabis, for just long enough to gain all the information they need to take over the medical use of Cannabis.
Look at Canada. Where medical patients have lost all their growing rights, while waiting in lines and waiting for “approval” for medicine that they cannot afford to buy from the Corporate growers!
First: Cannabis is already legal, as I have pointed out,
Second: Prohibition is the problem,
Thirdly: REPEAL is the only legal answer to end prohibition of Cannabis that is morally correct.
Fourth: the gateway drug theory is a lie and has been disproven and has been dispelled by the National Academy of Science over a decade ago in the 1999 report published by the National Academy Press, “Marijuana: Assessing the Science Base”, which stated plainly when examining this question or theory that, if there are any gateway drugs leading to addiction they would be sugar, nicotine and alcohol. Notice that Marijuana is not at the top of their list of gateway drugs for addiction, and that sugar is not on the Controlled Substance list despite all the disease, illness, and death it causes, not including the addiction.
There has never been a death caused by Marijuana consumption or overdose unless it was a result of it being prohibited (= being shot by a Cop)… Please find me ONE, I challenge you!
Cannabis Sativa L. (= Marijuana Cannabis/Hemp) is a FOOD first. It has been proven that we are all Endocannabinoid based life forms, and that Endocannabinoids are passed from Mother to Child in the Breast Milk.
However, this food has been prohibited from our gardens since basically 1937, while disease and illness caused by malnutrition grows out of control. Yet, the FDA wants YOU to believe that this food is a DRUG.
Well, so is bottled water, so do you want to see a Doctor for a prescription to buy bottled water?
I hear that my friend, Senator Perry Clark, has introduced a new bill that will repeal prohibition of Marijuana in Kentucky. I have not read the Kentucky “Cannabis Freedom Act” Bill thoroughly yet. If Sen. Perry Clark has asked to repeal Cannabis prohibition in Kentucky then he deserves our full support! Our State Representatives need to step up and do what we have paid them to do and additionally introduce KCHHI (Kentucky Cannabis Hemp Health Initiative) as a companion Bill alongside Sen. Perry Clark’s Bill and PROTECT the People of this State!
Both would REPEAL Cannabis prohibition in Kentucky.
Wake up! Educate yourselves on the entire truth of how it all does affect you, no matter who you are or what you think you know or believe. This is the twenty-first Century, the “Information Age”!

Because of the "Origination Clause" in the U.S. Constitution there must be a Representative to submit a "Companion Bill" in order for it to move forward because this clause says that all bills for raising revenue must start in the House of Representatives, but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as in the case of other bills.
All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.
COMPANION BILL – A bill which is identical to a bill having been introduced in the opposite house.
What we need to do right now is to find a Representative who is willing to back up Sen. Perry B. Clark’s BR 161 with a "COMPANION BILL" in order to be in coordination with the "Constitution".
Please write your Representative an email or letter asking them to get behind Sen. Perry B. Clark’s BR 161 and provide a "Companion Bill" as soon as possible because the Legislative Session (calendar link here) starts on January 5th, 2016 and January 8th, is the deadline for prefiled House Bills.
The LINKS you will need are listed here (just click on picture):
LINK to KY BR 161
LINK to KY Legislator’s Email Addresses: (Please note that some of the Representatives/Senators have direct email links, and some of them can be copied/pasted into your email program).
Also, of note, this is a little more time consuming, but worth it, I believe – When I wrote my "Email" I sent it to my individual Representative, who is Johnny Bell – in Glasgow, KY, but I also copied the email to ALL of the Kentucky Senators as well as the Representatives, so that THEY ALL would be able to see the letter I had written.
Here is the LINK to the 2016 Legislative Calendar:
As well, anyone who may have a printer, and postage money available should ideally send individual letters through the U.S. Postal Service to the Representatives given addresses. The more "paper" we can send them, the better they will hear us speaking!
PHONE CALL’s as well will be a great help! Please back up your letter or email with a phone call to your Representative to reiterate the issue of BR 161 !!!
PLEASE DO NOT LET THIS BILL DIE! KEEP IT GOING WITH AN EMAIL AND A PHONE CALL TO YOUR REPRESENTATIVE TODAY!
