LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


By Grant M. Deltz

A Vietnam War Veteren and two other Kentuckians are coming together to file a lawsuit to overturn a ban on medical marijuana in Kentucky.

The argument being made by Danny Belcher and his counterparts is that the ban is contradictory to the Kentucky Constitution’s protections on individual liberties and its prohibitions against arbitrary conduct by the government.

Belcher said that marijuana has helped with his PTSD.

“I’m just an average combat veteran who’s nothing special, but if marijuana will help one veteran out here get over those nightmares, the memory loss… if it gives a quality life back, why not do it instead of drugging these veterans up, destroying their liver, their lifestyle?”

The plaintiff’s attorney, Dan Canon, was part of the legal team that worked successfully to challenge the state’s same sex marriage ban.
