South Carolina Advocates Speak Out: All You Need to Know About the Proposed Medical Marijuana Legislation

Introduction: What is the Proposed Medical Marijuana Legislation and Who Are the South Carolina Advocates Behind It?

In South Carolina, advocates are pushing for the passage of a medical marijuana law that would provide access to medical cannabis to those with certain qualifying conditions. This proposed law would allow for the use and purchase of medical marijuana derivatives from state-licensed pharmacies. This article will discuss the proposed legislation, its potential implications, and highlight the South Carolina advocates who are working hard to make it a reality.

Background and History of Medical Marijuana in South Carolina

The history of medical marijuana in South Carolina is an interesting one. In the early 1980s, a bill passed the state legislature that would have allowed for medical marijuana use and was even signed into law by the governor making it an official act. More recently, in 2014, South Carolina passed a law that legalized medical access to CBD but did not allow for a mechanism of production. This law has been a major step forward for those who need access to cannabis-based treatments and therapies, but patients need the full spectrum of cannabinoids afforded by the marijuana plant.

What Are Some Potential Roadblocks to Passing the Proposed Legislation?

The proposed legislation to legalize medical cannabis in South Carolina has been met with much debate and opposition. There are numerous potential roadblocks to passing the proposed legislation, many of which stem from the legal implications of legalizing medicinal marijuana. Opposition to cannabis legalization in SC is strong, and there are many who argue that it would bring more harm than good. Additionally, there are logistical concerns that need to be addressed before any progress can be made on this issue.

Voters WANT legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes by almost 80%. WHY does this bill keep meeting the resistance it has? It’s ridiculous! When will SC step up for the taxpayers who really need this bill? Me being one of them. I have struggled with extreme pain for 10 years now and currently have to take fentanyl patch and pain meds to help me. This bill would offer me a less dangerous choice that’s more natural and not so dangerous with very bad side effects. Where is the help senators! It’s time to vote and make a difference or we vote in someone who will get with the program and bring SC into 2024 the correct & compassionate way.
Thank you,

Can’t believe this has not been passed! In the 70’s a chemo nurse I knew would give her patients a marijuana brownies to help with the side effects. Had a friend being treated for breast cancer, told her about marijuana brownies, got it from her Preacher. Told me later it saved her life! A family member has bad case of glaucoma, no drops helped but using marijuana twice a day keeps it under control. He would be blind if not using this according to the Doctor!. Its ridiculous we have not passed this Bill!
