In West Virginia, patients or caregivers are limited to possessing a 30-day supply of medical marijuana, as defined by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources. During the final seven days of each 30 days, patients may procure a 30-day supply for the subsequent period. The specific quantity considered a 30-day supply varies between patients and must be determined by the prescribing physician. This regulation aims to provide patients adequate access to medical marijuana while preventing excessive possession.

However, it’s important to note that employers are prohibited from discriminating against individuals in hiring, termination, or any aspect of employment based on their status as a caregiver or qualifying patient.
