CHARLESTON, WV (THE STATE JOURNAL) — West Virginia could be on the verge of legalizing the medical use of marijuana. The movement came after a 4 1/2-hour debate in the House of Delegates that ended at about 11 p.m. Monday.
The House agreed late in the afternoon to a strike-and-insert amendment to a medical marijuana bill the Senate passed on day 50 of the 60-day regular legislative session. House members then spent another 90 minutes debating amendments to that version of the legislation.
The medical marijuana bill was advanced to third reading with a final vote expected Tuesday.
