West Virginia will become the 29th state in the USA to decriminalize marijuana, after a bill to legalize it for medical purposes is passed. The state legislature approved the bill that seeks to legalize the drug and has already passed the ball to Gov. Jim Justice. 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.
When the law is in place, qualifying medical marijuana users would have to apply for patient ID cards from the Bureau for Public Health. "It's something that we are continuing to learn, evolve, but as Governor Justice said, if there's a way we can help people with compassion, for the chronic pain being at the heart of it, we must try to do that". "Providing patients with a safer alternative to opioids could turn out to be a godsend for this state".
There's concern new legislation in West Virginia legalizing medical marijuana could have a negative impact in southwest Virginia.
