West Virginia: Medical Marijuana Gaining Support

Fellow lawmakers would get uncomfortable three years ago when Delegate Mike Manypenny would buttonhole them in the hallways of the West Virginia House of Delegates. You see, Manypenny was trying to collect votes to legalize medical marijuana. Even for Manypenny himself, it could get a bit uncomfortable, reports Mannix Porterfield at the Beckley Register-Herald. “I needed to try to get support,” Manypenny said. “I’d go out and start discussing it.
