West Virginia Medical Cannabis Advisory Board Proposes THC Cover

PRINCETON, West Virginia (WVNS) – Some cannabis providers are wary of suggesting limiting the potency of medical marijuana could do more harm than good.

The West Virginia Medical Cannabis Advisory Board met a few weeks ago to discuss a proposal to limit the potency of THC in medical marijuana to ten percent.

What the board is doing doesn’t make sense, said Adam Gores, senior vice president of corporate affairs for Columbia Care, a leading provider of medical cannabis.

“Science does not support the desire of some to go forward with this. Ultimately, we believe that this is a decision between patients, doctors and pharmacists.

The Board decided to put the proposal forward until their next meeting. Brittany Elmore, general manager of the Greenlight dispensary in Princeton, said it’s frustrating to learn that the board isn’t taking this matter seriously.

She said she wanted members of the Medical Cannabis Council to talk to actual people who use medical marijuana.

“They need to talk to patients. They need to stop talking to other politicians, drug companies they need to find out the real evidence, and the real evidence is that my patients walk in here and say they’re no longer taking any opioids they’ve stopped taking, from painkillers and all that They have to do is treat with medical cannabis,” Elmore said.

Nexstar’s WVNS has contacted the West Virginia DHHR and the Medical Cannabis Advisory Board and has yet to receive a response.
