WV needs to take away the amendment added to bill SB 386. We want the ORIGINAL bill that unanimously passed through the Senate! We need medical marijuana in WV for many reasons. It has great health benefits for people that need it. Also this will bring jobs and industry to WV. We have one of the fastest declining populations in the US and it's because we don't have jobs. This would bring in cultivation opportunities, sales and tax revenue. We have seen so many successful states implementing medical marijuana. Why do we want to be last?? This could create such a huge market for WV. Why is it okay for a doctors to prescribe pain killers (addicting), depressions meds (can cause suicide) , birth control (strokes), along with hundreds of other medications that have terrible side effects but you're telling me the doctors can not prescribe some medical marijuana (no side effects)?!?! What is wrong with that picture?? It sounds a lot safer to me. It has lowered opiod abuse along with overdoses in other states, so it Seems like it would lower costs of healthcare (which is a hugeproblem right now). This would save tons of money! Why do we not learn from others success?? Why be last in everything?? Please sign this to show we want medical marijuana legalized to its full exten! Maximize its use and benefits! It is a MEDICATION with NO SIDE EFFECTS! Make the right choice for WV. Tell your delegates you want changes and for them to stop lining their pockets with huge pharmaceutical company's! It's time for the citizens of WV to be HEARD! Thank you!
