West Virginia Governor Jim Justice was asked on his thoughts on the state-funded ban.

Justice first said he doesn’t think the ban will hurt West Virginia’s economy and that he hates that the state of California would make the state-funded ban.

‘The state of California does some pretty strange stuff from time to time and I don’t think West Virginia in any way ever wants to be California,’ said Gov. Justice.

Gov. Justice added that he would welcome all California folks and that if they came ‘they would see what exactly what they’re really missing in California. Loving and appreciative people. They would see kindness like you wouldn’t imagine. ‘

Gov. Justice would go on to provide stories of families from North Carolina and California that came to West Virginia to visit and they ‘raved’ over West Virginia.

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey blasted California saying states should not penalize other states because of policy differences.
