No, folks, hemp is not yet a thing in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. It’s merely being studied via five pilot projects.

Not only is Greg Fischer’s endorsement in a primary inappropriate, it shows just how politically inept the guy is. “I think it’s a good old boy’s network and a clear example of cronyism to be frank. And it’s quite honestly a fueling factor for why I’m running. I’m extremely disappointed, especially when Tina is staying out of it and a lot of other people are.” [WFPL]

    ‘Bro’ Bill is a nice guy and would make a good council member. But so would a half dozen of the other entries. His endorser isn’t familiar with math as it relates to politics. In a 13 person race, when several entries are well-known individuals with solid reputations (a/la former long-time and elected circuit judge Jeff Morris) no one will gain 50% of the primary vote ERGO his endorser has gained the wrath of MORE THAN 50% of the 9th District voters. Oooops — as the merry-go-round goes around.
