Justice signs state into permitting medical marijuana

Currently, the acceptable conditions for medical marijuana use are: cancer, HIV/AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, epilepsy, neuropathies, Huntington's disease, Crohn's disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, intractable seizures, sickle cell anemia, severe chronic or intractable pain and being terminally ill. 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.

There are rules to be followed in buying pot or cannabis.

Recreational marijuana is already legalized in Alaska, Maine, California, Massachusetts, and Nevada. Washington, D.C legalized it in 2015. Eight of the 29 medical marijuana states also allow recreational use.

A provision that expires with the federal short-term spending plan on April 28 prohibits Justice Department interference in state-level medical cannabis programs.
