West Virginians can now register for medical cannabis card

The West Virginia Office of Medical Cannabis is encouraging eligible West Virginians with serious medical conditions to register online for a medical cannabis patient card.

A list of physicians registered to certify patients as eligible for the use of medical cannabis is also available on the website, www.medcanwv.org. Though the registered physician will certify that the patient is eligible, the patient must apply for a patient identification card on the website. Patients need a photo ID and proof of West Virginia residency.

There is a $50 registration fee. The fee can be waived for those below 200% of the federal poverty line.

The West Virginia Medical Cannabis Act permits West Virginia residents with serious medical conditions to procure medical cannabis for certified medical use in the following forms: pill; oil; topical forms including gels, creams or ointments; a form medically appropriate for administration by vaporization or nebulization; dry leaf or plant form; tincture; liquid; or dermal patch.

There are three physicians in Cabell County and three in Kanawha County registered to certify patients, according to the list from the state Department of Health and Human Resources.

Dr. Michael Spindel, a Huntington plastic surgeon, is among those certified. He said he’s had oncologists and pain management specialists refer patients to him for certification. He said he decided to get certified after several patients mentioned it to him. [Read more at The Herald-Dispatch]
