Kentucky was expected to legalize medical marijuana after the state Senate passed a bill that would have made the use of medical marijuana legal for people with common illnesses, including cancer, chronic pain, epilepsy and post-traumatic stress disorder, but a medical marijuana measure in Kansas has essentially been declared dead. Kentucky is one of 13 remaining states without viable access to medical marijuana, but nonetheless, Kentucky remains a key state in the nation for marijuana legalization. The state is a major hub for industrial hemp production, with companies there being major players in the CBD and delta-8 THC markets, and it is also home to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, whose support has been integral to federal reform. Also on Thursday, Kansas lawmakers appeared to kill any chance of legalizing medical marijuana this year when a key Senate committee introduced a medical marijuana bill, according to the Associated Press.
