SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A group is speaking out against a plan to legalize marijuana in West Virginia.
Lawmakers have been studying the idea of allowing people with debilitating illnesses to use marijuana it their doctors recommend it.
Wednesday, a hearing was held at the West Virginia State Police Academy in South Charleston.
A group that held drug endangered children says legalizing marijuana at this point is a bad idea. They are asking lawmakers to let the food and drug administration finish studies on the safety of medical marijuana before they make a decision.
A bill is expected to be introduced during the regular session in January.
The issue has been introduced in the past couple of years but has never been brought up for a vote.
