West Virginia Medical Marijuana Card

On April 5, 2017, the Legislature in West Virginia passed a bill to legalize medical marijuana, and on April 20th of the same year, the bill was signed into law by Gov. Jim Justice. The West Virginia Medical Cannabis Commission, which will be created by the proposed bill, will develop identification cards in 2019 for patients who qualify for medical cannabis.

The West Virginia medical marijuana card developed by the state cannabis commission will be secure and trackable. This means that when a patient holds a registration card, law enforcement will be able to cross-check its validity on a secure website.

Benefits of Obtaining a West Virginia Marijuana Card

If you have a medical problem named as a qualifying condition in West Virginia, there’s no reason not to pursue your medical marijuana card. Medical cannabis may be used to treat conditions such as:

Here’s a look at some of the benefits of getting your card:

  • Legal Protection from Arrest: A registered marijuana patient or caregiver with an ID card will enjoy protection from arrest, prosecution, fines and other penalties. Employers are not allowed to discriminate against a person as soon as they attain the status of a registered marijuana patient.
  • Permission to Serve as a Caregiver: Your West Virginia marijuana card will give you the opportunity to help a patient obtain their regular dose of medical cannabis from a dispensary. Caregivers will also be allowed to help minors who are less than 18 years of age, along with adults who are suffering from debilitating ailments.
  • Treatment for All Approved Conditions: The medical marijuana ID card received from the state Department of Health will allow patients to use marijuana to treat all qualifying conditions and maintain their health. As a result, patients will have access to liquids, tinctures, ointments, creams, gels, oils, pills and other non-whole-plant forms that can be used through vaporization.
  • Permission to Carry Sufficient Supply of Medical Cannabis: A registration card for medical marijuana permits patients to carry a maximum 30-day supply of their daily dose of marijuana. You won’t be penalized for keeping this amount of cannabis in your home or for being in possession of it as long as you’re within a safe distance from a school’s premises.
