FRANKFORT, KY. — Sen. Perry Clark invoked the legacy of the late marijuana advocate Gatewood Galbraith on Thursday, announcing plans to refile legislation that would allow doctors to prescribe marijuana for medicinal purposes.

The bill, called the Gatewood Galbraith Memorial Medical Marijuana Act, would reclassify the drug as a Schedule II substance available for medical treatment under a doctor’s direction.

It also would allow patients to possess up to 5 ounces of marijuana or cultivate up to five plants for their own medicinal use.

Clark, D-Louisville, was joined Thursday by members of Galbraith’s family and dozens of supporters who exchanged personal testimonies about the drug’s benefits for diseases that range from cancer to mood disorders.

“Right now there are hundreds of thousands of Kentuckians who are suffering, and they need access to this plant,” said Galbraith’s daughter, Molly Galbraith.

Clark said he has recommendations from doctors and has personally smoked marijuana, but is not a chronic user. He said he is not concerned that the admission would affect his electability and called the issue too important to delay.
