West Virginia Lawmaker Introduces Legislation to Legalize Marijuana and Hash

A proposal that would make marijuana and hash legal throughout West Virginia has been filed in the state’s legislature.

House Bill 3035 was filed by Delegate Sean Hornbuckle (D). According to its summary, the purpose of this bill “is to legalize the manufacture, sale and possession of marijuana and establish a regulatory program for growing, selling and testing of marijuana sold in West Virginia.”

The measure would allow those 21 and older to possess and use up to an ounce of marijuana and up to five grams of hash; they would also be allowed to grow up to six cannabis plants (with up to three allowed to be in the “mature”  stage at any given time). A system of licensed marijuana retail outlets would also be authorized.
