Great news for the people of Kentucky who are seeking cannabis as an alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals, Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear signed an executive order allowing for just that.

The order currently lists 21 different ailments that will qualify for medical cannabis possession and use. PTSD, cancer, and multiple sclerosis are a few of the named illnesses that will qualify.

The order will allow for the purchase of cannabis and cannabis products from other states just as long as there is a written diagnosis from a Kentucky doctor.

Beshear went on to say in the order that.”Allowing Kentuckians diagnosed with certain medical conditions and receiving palliative care to purchase, possess and/or use medical cannabis would improve the quality of their lives.”

Residents will also be required to keep receipts of purchases made that identify the store and date on which the product was purchased. There is also an eight ounces purchase limit for Kentuckians who plan on stocking up.

Kentucky is still one of the few remaining states not to pass some form of legalization for cannabis and with overwhelming support from the majority of the population continuing to rise Gov. Beshear stepped into action.

Kentucky has passed a bill, twice now, for the legalization of cannabis only to have it stopped at the state senate level. Gov. Beshear’s executive order will go into effect on January 1st with hopes that it will help improve the lives of many Kentuckians
