West Virginia Green is the New Black’s mission is to help establish a safe and thriving cannabis industry for the state of West Virginia. We believe that comprehensive cannabis legislation combined with a strong network of entrepreneurs, patients, and informed citizen advocates can benefit each and every member of the Mountain State. We aim to improve the lives of West Virginians by using information, education, and advocacy as our weapons against prohibition and decades of misinformation about the cannabis plant.
As of April 19th, 2017 our state reached a milestone in the lengthy battle for Medical Cannabis Legislation by becoming the 29th state to have a medical law on the book. After rallying communities in support of Senate Bill 386, it was signed into law by Governor Jim Justice. While West Virginia may now have legal medicinal cannabis, the fight for the “right” laws concerning the industry and most importantly patients within the state is far from over. In the coming months we will be at the fore-front of many educational and activism projects in order to forge a greater future for the burgeoning hemp and cannabis industry for our state.
