House kills buzz on marijuana measure
The Dominion Post
CHARLESTON — The House of Delegates spent two hours debating, and ultimately defeating, a proposed bill amendment to allow physicians to prescribe medical marijuana.
HB 2526 is a routine annual bill to align the state drug schedules with the federal. It was on second reading March 9 and open to amendment. Delegate Shawn Fluharty, D-Ohio, proposed an amendment to move marijuana from Schedule I to Schedule IV.
After the two hours, the vote was 35-64, killing the amendment.
The bill is on third reading March 10.
