Legal Medical Marijuana Mulled in West Virginia

A legislative analyst for the Marijuana Policy Project told state lawmakers on Wednesday that permitting the use of marijuana for medical purposes can generate revenue for the state, although he says helping patients who need it is more important.

Matt Simon made the comments to an interim legislative committee studying the use of marijuana for medical issues, which is currently not allowed in the state.

The National Conference of State Legislatures says 20 states and the District of Columbia permit the use of marijuana for medical purposes. Marijuana is still outlawed under federal law, however.
