Call your senator’s office and urge them to support giving HB 136 a hearing and a vote!

The Kentucky House has already voted 65-30 to pass the medical cannabis bill, but unfortunately, there is no guarantee that Senate leaders will allow the bill to receive a vote. HB 136 has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee, and this week the committee’s chairman, Sen. Whitney Westerfield (R-Hopkinsville), cast doubt on the bill’s prospects. “I know it won’t get a hearing until I’m OK with it, and for sure I’ve still got questions right now," he said.

Please call your senator’s office today and urge them to support giving this bill a hearing and a vote!

Then, please call Senator Westerfield’s office and call Senate President Robert Stivers’ office and tell them this bill is urgently needed for Kentuckians who are battling serious medical conditions.

After you call your senator’s office, Senator Westerfield’s office, and Senate President Robert Stivers’ office, please share this message with your friends and family.
