Medical Marijuana Bill Introduced In West Virginia
A bill to legalize marijuana for a wide range of medical purposes was introduced Thursday in West Virginia.
The proposed law, HB 4264, would allow people with “debilitating medical conditions” to possess up to six ounces of marijuana and 24 cannabis plants to treat their symptoms — as long as they have written certification from a physician.
Only 12 of the 24 plants may be mature at a time, and all must be cultivated in an enclosed, locked space. Alternately, the law would allow patients to designate “caregivers” to cultivate their 24 allotted plants for them. Each caregiver could grow marijuana for up to five patients.
