West Virginia Delegate Introduces Marijuana Legalization Bill

Medical marijuana is legal in the State of West Virginia, and thousands of residents already have their medical cards! With your medical card, you can access any of the state’s medical cannabis dispensaries!

Although medical marijuana is legal in West Virginia, there has been very little movement toward the legalization of recreational cannabis until recently. Finally, the state is taking the steps to legalize cannabis for all!

House Bill 2091 was recently introduced by Denielle Walker, which proposes the legalization of recreational cannabis in West Virginia. More specifically, the bill aims to legalize possession of one ounce or marijuana.

The bill would also legalize private consumption of recreational cannabis products, in one’s own home, for example. Driving under the influence of cannabis and cannabis use on government property would remain illegal if the bill passes.

House Bill 2091 also proposes a 15% tax on cannabis retailers when they purchase from a cultivation facility, meaning that recreational cannabis will be significantly more expensive than medical products.

At the moment, the bill is making its way through the House of Health & Human Resources Committee. We will update you with any news on its passage as soon as the information becomes available.

The Bottom Line

The legalization of recreational cannabis is inarguably coming soon! However, there are still so many advantages to having your medical card in a recreational state! Some of these benefits include:

  • Lower product costs

  • Less taxes

  • Higher possession limits

  • Higher cultivation limits

  • Legal protection

…and so much more! Even if recreational cannabis is legalized in West Virginia, it will likely take years for the retail market to launch, so what are you waiting for? See if you qualify for a medical marijuana card today!
