CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Medical marijuana has become an issue for lawmakers in West Virginia.
A bill introduced Friday would allow patients with debilitating medical issues to use medical marijuana if their doctors recommend the prescription. It would also create five centers across the state where patients could get the drug.
Patients would also be allowed to grow up to 12 marijuana plants in their home.
Similar bills have been introduced in the past two legislative session, but they have failed to pass.
Delegate Mike Manypenny, democrat, from Taylor County introduced the piece of legislation.
