Is Marijuana Legal in Kentucky?

by | Apr 2, 2023 | CRIMINAL DEFENSE |

NO.  Marijuana possession and sale is still illegal in Kentucky. Governor Beshear has enacted an Executive Order which authorized a Pardon in certain circumstances.

Not recently,  the legislature had passed medical Marijuana laws which go into effect in 2025.

All of this is very misleading in the media. You can be arrested. You can be convicted. You can go to jail or prison. If you also possess a weapon or have over 8 ounces, you will be Cudahy with a Felony.

If you’ve been charged,  know your rights and hire an attorney who knows the law!  In Kentucky call 581-MIKE, that’s 859-581-6453 or email [email protected].
