Medical marijuana bill introduced in WV


A bill was introduced Thursday in the West Virginia legislature that would allow the medical use of marijuana.

West Virginia Delegate Mike Manypenny, a democrat from Taylor County, introduced the bill.  The medical use would only apply to state residents with debilitating conditions, such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, and HIV/AIDS.  It would also have to be recommended by a doctor.

The bill, known as HB 4264, would also establish a state-regulated system of medical marijuana cultivation facilities and dispensaries to provide medical marijuana to licensed patients.
