FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) – Two pieces of legislation getting a lot of attention in Frankfort are one step closer to going to Governor Beshear’s desk.

A bill legalizing medicinal marijuana and another banning transgender girls from playing female school sports passed in the House.

Lawmakers debated for more than an hour over medicinal cannabis. Further lengthy debate on the topic of banning transgender girls from playing girls sports.

Passionate testimony from Republican Rep. James Nemes Thursday as his medical marijuana bill came up for a vote.

“If your physician, or your wife or husband’s physician, or God forbid your child’s physician told you that this product works in other states, and it would help your child, what would you do? If you would fight for your kid, hit the green button,” Rep. Nemes said.

The bill would legalize medicinal cannabis as a treatment option for patients suffering from conditions like cancer, chronic pain, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

It’s moved to the Senate, but not without opposition.

“I didn’t come to Frankfort for liquor, for gambling, or for marijuana. I came here to stand against it,” Rep. Chris Fugate. [Read More @ WKYT]
