The Public Safety Committee of the Louisville Metro Council will have a special discussion on making cannabis one of the lowest law enforcement priorities and related issues for Louisville Metro when it meets on Wednesday, February 27th.
“For several years now, there has been a growing discussion of legalizing marijuana across the country and approving medical marijuana use here in Kentucky,” says Councilwoman Jessica Green (D-1), who chairs the Committee. “Those discussions, along with current discussions surrounding the budget, are all reasons for us to keep an open mind about the issue.”
Councilwoman Green has invited Tom Rector Jr. of the Kentucky Cannabis Freedom Coalition to come and speak to the Committee.
The Public Safety Committee will meet at 3:30pm in Council Chambers, Historic City Hall, 601 West Jefferson Street.
The meeting will be carried live on Metro TV, Spectrum Cable Channel 184 or on UVERSE at Channel 99.
