FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) – A Republican senator not only gave medical marijuana supporters a voice at the state Capitol on Wednesday, she provided them advice.
Sen. Julie Denton, R-Louisville, repeatedly told advocates that focusing their efforts on legalizing cannabis oil, which supporters said could treat epilepsy and seizures without any psychotic effects, was smart politically.
“What the general public thinks about pot, marijuana, cannabis — whatever you want to call it — is that people get high and it distorts their version of reality,” Denton said. “If we get the answers to the questions on the cannabis oil, and what happens with that, and how can we make that work, it may open up to other things.”
