CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Nearly four years after West Virginia lawmakers allowed a regulatory system to be established for medical cannabis products, eligible residents can start registering to eventually receive them.

Residents with serious medical conditions can start registering Wednesday at www.medcanwv.org. Patient cards that will be issued will be valid only in West Virginia.

Getting registered does not mean that products can be obtained immediately because the industry is working to build out facilities in West Virginia, the state Department of Health and Human Resources said in a news release.

The DHHR last week announced the 100 licensed retail locations that will sell medical cannabis products.

The 2017 state law allows for medical cannabis use in pills, oils, topical gels, liquids, dermal patches and a form that can be vaporized.
