Pending legislation in West Virginia would legalize adult-use cannabis in the state, according to a WCHS report.

Sens. Mike Caputo (D-Marion) and Mike Romano (D-Harrison) introduced Senate Bill 15 last month to legalize cannabis production, sales and consumption for adults 21 and older.

The legislation is currently held up in the Senate Judiciary Committee after being introduced at the beginning of this year’s legislative session, WCHS reported.

West Virginia legalized medical cannabis in 2017, and the state’s first dispensary opened nearly four years later in November 2021.
