West Virginia Marijuana laws

West Virginia lawmakers legalized medical marijuana in April of 2017, with implementation of the law expected in 2019 or later.

Code Sections
Possession

What’s Prohibited?

It’s illegal to knowingly or intentionally possess marijuana or other controlled substances without a valid prescription in West Virginia.

What's the Penalty?

Possession of marijuana is a misdemeanor crime and can get you 90 days to six months in jail and a fine up to $1,000. For second or subsequent violations, the penalties double to up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine.

You may be able to get deferred prosecution for a first possession offense. With this, you plead guilty, but the charges are dismissed if you successfully complete your probation requirements.

Dealing marijuana is a felony offense that can be punished by 1 to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $15,000. A second offense can be sentenced to double the regular penalties.

Adults 21 or older selling weed to a minor under 18 or adults 18 or older selling it within 1,000 feet of a school or college have to serve a mandatory two years before they can be paroled out.
