Workshop on legal marijuana to be held in Louisville

Intrigued by the legal marijuana industry? ComfyTree Cannabis Academy is coming to Louisville on Jan. 11 with a traveling seminar on everything from lobbying to growing for the market to running a dispensary. A spokesman said that about 30 participants had signed up by Friday.

Kentucky state Sen. Perry Clark, D-Louisville, has said he plans to refile the Gatewood Galbraith Bill, which would legalize medical marijuana in Kentucky, for the upcoming legislative session. A petition on in support of the bill had 4,219 signatures on Friday morning. The goal is 5,000 signatures.

House Speaker Greg Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, said in September that he is "leaning toward supporting the use of medical marijuana" and wants to see the issue debated.
