Kentucky Sen. Steve West has introduced a medical cannabis legalization bill, according to a local WMKY report.

West’s Senate Bill 92 would allow practitioners to recommend medical cannabis to their patients, and would legalize the cultivation, manufacturing, distribution, sale and delivery of cannabis products in the state, the news outlet reported.

West’s proposal joins Rep. Jason Nemes’ House Bill 136, a separate medical cannabis legalization proposal that was reintroduced earlier this month after stalling during last year’s legislative session.
