On Friday, Treasurer John Perdue informed the governor’s general counsel that he is researching alternative banking options to process funds related to the program.
“Personally, I recognize the need for marijuana as a medicinal option for suffering West Virginians,” Perdue said in the release. “I look forward to sitting down with Gov. Justice and his staff to discuss lawful solutions to the current banking obstacles related to processing cannabis funds in our state.”
Last week, the governor said in a press release that he supports medical marijuana, but he will wait on the treasurer’s office to bring forward solutions related to collecting funds.
