CHARLESTON – The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources’ Bureau for Public Health this week announced a medical cannabis public online survey to gather information from patients who may be interested in obtaining medical cannabis.
“This is a non-scientific, anonymous survey to hear from West Virginia residents who may be considering the use of medical cannabis to treat their serious illness,” said Dr. Rahul Gupta, state health officer and commissioner of the DHHR’s Bureau for Public Health.
“This evaluation will provide some insight as to the demographics of the potential patient population, where they are currently seeking care and for what conditions they will be seeking medical cannabis, along with what forms of medical cannabis they may choose to obtain.”

Results from the survey will be shared with the West Virginia Medical Cannabis Advisory Board in December.
