Kentucky Senator Who Owns Bourbon Factory Says Vote Me Out If You Don’t Like My Stance On Regulated Cannabis

CANNANNEW REPORT

Marijuana Moment has this story of a booze happy senator who won’t vote to legalize medical cannabis because that might actually lead to adults smoking cannabis for their own pleasure…and we can’t be having that can we! Marijuana Moment reports The reason for Thayer’s opposition is somewhat ironic. The senator said he thinks medical cannabis is “a slippery slope for recreational marijuana.” But he doesn’t seem to have a problem with other, arguably more dangerous, recreational products. The senator owns a whiskey distillery. In fact, a biography on the “Kentucky Senator” liquor brand’s website proudly notes that Thayer is the only senator to have twice won “The 100 Proof Award,” which is “the highest honor that the Bourbon industry gives to elected officials who promote and protect Kentucky’s home spirit.” Also in Monday’s KET forum, House Speaker Pro Tempore David Meade (R) said he is “on the fence” about medical cannabis. “It depends on how it is tailored and how tight it is,” he said. “My fear is the same as Senator Thayer’s, is that he’s going to lead to some type of recreational environment.” In any case, Kentucky Democratic leaders said at a briefing on Monday that legalizing medical marijuana is one of their top priorities for the upcoming 2022 legislative session. “Another thing enjoys widespread support among Kentuckians—and is just long overdue—is commonsense cannabis laws,” Senate Minority Leader Morgan McGarvey (D) said. “We must go ahead and get medical marijuana passed in Kentucky this session.” Read full story GOP Kentucky Senator Who Sells Bourbon Invites Voters To Unseat Him Over Medical Marijuana Opposition
