Tim Miley says that most Democrats in the House of Delegates support legalization of marijuana

By Connect Clarksburg Staff | January 11, 2019
WV House of Delegates Minority Leader Tim Miley said Thursday a majority of Democrats in the House support the legalization of the recreational use of marijuana.
“In talking with the various members individually, the majority do,” Miley, D-Harrison, said during an appearance on MetroNews “Talkline.” 
He said the feeling wasn’t unanimous among the members of his caucus but most believe it would be good for the state.
“At some point I would like for West Virginia to be on the front end of things instead of the back end because by the time this governor gets around to wanting to do that we’ll be the 47th or 48th state to do that and we won’t get any benefit from it,” Miley predicted.
Justice said during his State of the State Address Wednesday night he was in favor of lawmakers fixing the 2017-approved medical marijuana issue but against recreational use being legalized.

“I am adamantly, adamantly, etched in stone, adamantly against recreational marijuana,” Justice said.
State Attorney General Patrick Morrisey tweeted Thursday evening his office was going to issue a legal opinion on the medical marijuana issue at noon Friday.
