There are 28 states that legalized Medical Marijuana – with that number growing each year.

PutnamCountyNews.com has long editorialized that Medical Marijuana should be legalized in West Virginia. It will provide pain relief to cancer patients and create hundreds of jobs and provide the Mountain State with much-needed revenue.
