Report: LMPD officer smells marijuana in vehicle, finds murder suspect

Report: LMPD officer smells marijuana in vehicle, finds murder suspect A man wanted for murder in another state was arrested in Louisville. According to an arrest report, it started with the smell of marijuana coming from a vehicle. Police said Kelton Moore, 34, was the passenger in a vehicle that was omitting a strong odor Tuesday in west Louisville. Officers searched the vehicle and found a handgun. The Louisville man admitted to police he had it for four weeks and had purchased it on the streets of Louisville, the report said.

Medical marijuana can be used for pain that degrades health and functional capability as an alternative to opioid use . 9. Are there limits to the amount of medical marijuana that can be recommended for patients using medical marijuana as a substitute to opioids for acute pain?

Someone who has gone through the legal process to get their medical marijuana card shouldn't be penalized just because they are under county supervision, Folmer said.

"This person is trying to get their life together, he's trying to do the right thing, and he went through the legal process," Folmer said. "Why would we want to waste money and put him back in jail again? It doesn't make any sense. This is ridiculous."

Folmer said he is hoping to talk to Tylwalk about the policy.

There was inevitably going to be some bugs in the process to legalize medical marijuana, Folmer said.

"We knew there were some things we had to fine-tune on this, and this is one of the things we're gonna have to," he said.
