During a brief ceremony at the state capitol, Justice signed a measure to make West Virginia the 29th legal medical marijuana state. The other three were approved by voters in November in states won by Donald Trump - Arkansas, Florida, and North Dakota.
West Virginia's new law recognizes marijuana as a treatment for patients with terminal illnesses or any of 14 specified conditions, including cancer, HIV/AIDS, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, and intractable pain.

As MPP notes, West Virginia's DUID standard "could make it illegal for some patients to ever drive, since many patients have THC levels at this amount or greater many hours or days after last administering cannabis".
