LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two members of Louisville Metro Council who have signaled their support of the legalization of medical marijuana have invited the public to attend three town hall meetings discussing the topic.

Earlier this week, council members Angela Leet and Vicki Welch joined with eight other council members to sponsor of a resolution urging the Kentucky General Assembly to adopt House Bill 166, "or any other legislation that would legalize medical cannabis in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and provide for the care, comfort and relief of any Kentuckian who may benefit."

On Wednesday, Leet and Welch invited the public to attend three town hall meetings on the topic, which would take place in different parts of the community.

The times and locations of the meetings are as follows:
