West Virginia regulators have announced that the Office of Medical Cannabis will begin accepting applications next month for permits to operate in the state’s coming legal medical marijuana industry. The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources’ Bureau for Public Health said in a press release on Tuesday that the application period would open on December 19.
During the 60-day application period, prospective cannabis growers, processors, distributors, and dispensaries will be able to apply online at www.medcanwv.org. Applications will only be accepted through the Office of Medical Cannabis website; paper applications will not be available.
Jason Frame, Director of the West Virginia Office of Medical Cannabis, said that the state is on its way to regulated medicinal cannabis for its residents.
“This is a key step in the process to make medical cannabis available to West Virginians with serious medical conditions,” said Frame. “We and many others continue to work toward a goal of providing eligible West Virginia residents the ability to procure quality-tested medical cannabis.”
The application period for permits to operate in West Virginia’s medicinal cannabis industry will begin on December 19, 2019 at 3 p.m. and will close on February 18 at 3 p.m. No further
