Will West Virginia Regulate Medical Marijuana?

| by NORML

Legislation that seeks to legalize the physician-supervised use of medical marijuana has been introduced for the first time in the West Virginia Legislature.

House Bill 3251, The Compassionate Use of Medical Marijuana Act, amends state law so that physician-supervised patients with an authorized “chronic or debilitating medical condition” can possess six plants and up to an ounce of usable marijuana for medical purposes. The measure also allows for the establishment “compassion centers” to dispense medical cannabis to qualified patients.

House Bill 3251 has been referred to House Judiciary Committee. Full text of the measure is available here.
