Kentucky should be embracing the Industrial Hemp business, i.e., farming...and looking into repealing the prohibition of Marijuana all together. Kannalife.com has now been given "exclusive rights" to develop cannabis based pharmaceutical drugs. Why hasn't this plant been given back to the people first and then I wouldn't have a problem with pharma cannabis. But until the repeal, there should be nobody allowed "rights" if we can't have them first!

over 2 Billion dollars, and they had to hide the plants. they found No where near all of it, and there is no orginized way to really tell how much money really was made off of it. 2.9 million dollars went to the cannabis eradication force in Ky,Tn, and Va , add in the 100,000$ DEA sponsered "rewards" to shirff offices for 150,000 Marjiana plants or more. It's very clear that this drug war is coasting insane amounts of money, money straight out of the pockets of the poor. It's a shame that the people cant even turn to the police to report this crime. -Ky Token@Facebook.com
