FRANKFORT, Ky. (WHAS) -- A measure that would legalize the use of medical marijuana in Kentucky has passed out of a House panel. Kentucky House panel approves medical marijuana
 

The perennial bill is sponsored this year by Rep. Mary Lou Marzian, a Democrat of Louisville. 
 
Proponents of the bill, testifying before the committee, included disabled military veterans and medical experts who say the bill would open the door for beneficial marijuana research. 
 
Concerns emerged from Rep. Robert Benvenuti, a Republican from Lexington, who says the drug is dangerous for communities, and that not enough is known about it.
