Justice Signs Medical Marijuana Bill

The Governor was joined for the bill signing by two of the initiative's primary supporters, Senator Richard Ojeda (D-Logan) and Delegate Mike Pushkin (D-Kanawha), as well as Senator Mike Woelfel (D-Cabell) and Dr. Rahul Gupta the State Health Officer and Commissioner of the Department of Health and Human Resources' Bureau for Public Health. Patient identification cards could be issued starting in July 2019.

"It is a hard, not an undoable task between balancing the needs of individuals to get relief in a compassionate way with the existing literature and science", he said.

Gov. Jim Justice signed a bill that would legalize medical marijuana in a Wednesday ceremony.

Other conditions could be added later.

JZSAnother 18 states have approved medical marijuana laws that MPP deems "ineffective because they are either unworkable or exceptionally restrictive". The fee will be $50, though exceptions could be made for people who cannot afford that. Eight of the 29 medical marijuana states also allow recreational use.

The medical marijuana will be available as pills; oils; for vaporization or nebulization; in topical forms, like gels, creams or ointments; tinctures; liquids or dermal patches.

With both an ID and certificate, qualifying patients could then purchase medical marijuana from one of up to 30 dispensaries in West Virginia supplied by processors who will pay fees and are also licensed through the Bureau for Public Health.

Cannabis plants grow in the greenhouse at Vireo Health's medical marijuana cultivation facility, August 19, 2016 in Johnstown, New York. As MPP notes, West Virginia's DUID standard "could make it illegal for some patients to ever drive, since many patients have THC levels at this amount or greater many hours or days after last administering cannabis". Patients will need to have a written certification from their doctor to use medical cannabis.

"I think it's not a black and white", he said.

"West Virginians are compassionate people and this law will help our neighbors who are struggling with illness", said Governor Jim Justice.

A February 2017 Quinnipiac University Poll found 93% of US voters think marijuana should be legal for medical purposes.
