CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- After months of studies and legislative meetings, a bill that would legalize medical marijuana in West Virginia soon will be introduced during the upcoming legislative session.
Delegate Mike Manypenny said he will sponsor the bill. This is the fourth time he has introduced legislation to legalize medical marijuana.
Manypenny said this time he has 18 to 20 delegates who are ready to sign on and support the proposal.
Twenty states and the District of Columbia already allow marijuana use for medicinal purposes.
The legislative session starts Jan. 8.
