Lexington’s city council is asking the general assembly to pass legislation legalizing medical marijuana in Kentucky.

The council acted unanimously Tuesday to send the request to legislative leaders.  Council Member Jake Gibbs says the Lexington governing body heard from six people who say medical marijuana had helped them. “Dealing with things from gunshot wounds to post traumatic distress disorder to car crashes.  Another guy had a tick bite which he’s taken 32 medicines for,” said Gibbs.
