(Frankfort, KY) - A state lawmaker is working toward legalizing marijuana in Kentucky.
State Representative Nima Kulkarni has pre-filed a bill that would remove criminal penalties for possession of small amounts of marijuana.
The bill would allow Kentucky residents 21 and older to possess, use, buy, or sell up to one ounce of marijuana without facing charges. The proposal would also allow residents to own up to five plants for personal use.
The General Assembly would control the regulation of how marijuana is grown, taxed, and sold.
