CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- At the West Virginia State Capitol a controversial bill is now up for debate.

West Virginia Delegate Mike Manypenny (D-Taylor) introduced a bill Thursday that would allow people with debilitating medical conditions, such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, and HIV/AIDS, to use medical marijuana if a doctor recommends it.

The legislation would also establish a state regulated system from marijuana growing and distribution centers.

Twenty states and the District of Columbia have adopted laws that allow people with certain debilitating medical conditions to use medical marijuana with a recommendation from their doctors.
