Cannabis Community Educational Forum at EKU

December 6, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Richmond, Kentucky: Cannabis Community Educational Forum

“Our event is a fantastic opportunity for people who are curious to learn more about cannabis reform as well as the impact legalization has had on other states across the country,” said Matthew Bratcher, Executive Director for KY NORML. “The people of our Commonwealth deserve to have comprehensive cannabis reform, and education is key for that to happen.”

KY NORML’s Cannabis Community Educational Forum will take place on Thursday, December 6th, 2018, from 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm (EST) at Eastern Kentucky University’s Perkins Building, Room 202 in Richmond, Kentucky. Executive Director Matthew Bratcher will be joined by cannabis entrepreneur Ashly Taylor, former LMPD Narcotics Officer Steve Watts, Kentuckians for Medical Marijuana (KY4MM) Director Jaime Montalvo, and Americans for Innovative Medicine (AIM) Director, and hospice nurse Shannon Stacy for an evening of cannabis education ranging from topics about the history of cannabis, the endocannabinoid system, a legally-regulated industry, as well as economic and societal impact that legalization has had in the 32 states that have passed medical cannabis reform.

“Kentucky’s children, patients, and veterans deserve the right to seek relief with medical cannabis, which has been proven by countless studies to be a safe and effective alternative to damaging and dangerous pharmaceuticals”, said Lauren Morgan Kie, Deputy-Director of KY NORML.
