Medical Marijuana Bill Introduced in West Virginia

February 28, 2011

wvu ssdp ssdp

The Compassionate Use of Medical Marijuana Act,

introduced last Monday by Delegate Mike Manypenny from Taylor County, aims to amend state law so that physician-supervised patients with an authorized chronic or debilitating medical condition can possess six plants and up to an ounce of usable marijuana for medical purposes. The measure also allows for the establishment compassion centers to dispense medical cannabis to qualified patients. Read the bill

So when can you get a prescription?

Unfortunately, not quite yet. This summer looks hopeful for the legislation moving forward, but we may have to wait until next year before it sees the House floor. Drew Stromberg, President of WVU Students for Sensible Drug Policy said, “The bill didn’t make the agenda this session, but we’re hoping we can have it introduced during the interim session this summer.”

Since the bill was introduced, SSDP has been very busy gearing up to launch a state-wide campaign. Drew commented, “This past week has been crazy. We’ve been driving back and forth to Charleston, talking with delegates and setting up meetings. I really think we can make medical marijuana a reality in West Virginia and it’s very exciting to be this close.”

    – link on some of the multiple healing properties of cannabis found
    thus far

    Cannabis, is not a plant this is native to West Virginia as far as
    we know, but its been shown to have a positive effect on the soil,
    making it more soil, and actually adding nutrients to it, from what we
    understand. (Hemp for Health, Chris Conrad)

    The amount of medical illnesses that it treats is amazing for only one plant.

    The culture surrounding it doesn’t seem to be one of power hungry or
    money driven people, but down to earth, sharing and earthy, nature
    oriented conscious people who are not trying to do harm to anyone.

    I personally use it for medicinal and spiritual reasons, for my
    schizophrenia and because it is a sacrament in wantism.
    Lately though I’ve been suprisingly okay without out it, still
    freaking out a bit, but I’ve tried magnesium and I think that is
    I’ve also been doing a lot, gone out into nature, which helps, and
    have been inspired to write much which has been meaningful to others,
    I am in a good spirit.
    I personally have horrible reactions to anti psychotic medication
    which I’ve been prescribed because I have an irregular heartbeat, and
    this actually has been shown to react with the medications to create a
    symptom called Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome, which causes brain
    damage, and is extremely uncomfortable and irreversible, so thats why
    I think I should be prescribed cannabis instead, aside from it being a
    part of my spiritual practice. But I actually am glad to be away from
    it for a bit, sometimes things are really bad, and I can’t even deal
    without it, I feel like the world is attacking me, all kinds of
    strange things, but others like now, I am fine without it for a very
    long time. So its kind of strange. But I think it is good to have some
    around just in case, and also occasionally just to meditate and pray
    with. And I would like to get a prescription just because I’ve been
    trying to for a long time, and at this point it has even kind of a
    symbolic meaning to me, and even to this area, I think we should be
    more open to herbal cures and remedies even doctors and hospitals,
    because they tend to have very few side effects, and are a gentle
    remedy to so many things, its sad that we neglect them so often, in
    favor of chemicals which are in most cases more harmful.
    Something about using plants is just better for the soul, and people
    really do trust it more.

    Anyways that is all for now.

    Aigy Shalom, thank you for listening
