Yarmuth Urges Kentucky General Assembly Passage of HB166

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-03) released the statement below urging the Kentucky General Assembly to adopt House Bill 166 to legalize medical cannabis:

“I am proud to stand with Rep. Sims, Sec. Grimes, and others throughout Kentucky in support of House Bill 166 to legalize medical cannabis in the Commonwealth. From Parkinson’s disease, to multiple sclerosis, to veterans battling PTSD, and others fighting a range of debilitating illnesses, we need to make sure that all Kentuckians have access to effective medical treatments, and that includes medical cannabis. Kentucky has the opportunity to join with 30 other states and the District of Columbia in being a leader on this important health issue, and I will do all I can at the federal level to ensure that this Congress and the Trump Administration respects that work.“
