Frankfort sex scandal 2: screwed economy

Sen. Reggie Thomas (D-Lexington) pre-filed a bill for the 2018 General Assembly yesterday to raise the state minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Frankfort politicians seeking to boost the economy need to get out of the way of Kentucky's top cash crop -- cannabis -- by ending prohibition. We've spent a century proving prohibition doesn't work and over roughly the same period we've seen proof over and over again that we can't legislate our way to prosperity with these silly wealth redistribution schemes.
