South Carolina Subcommittee Approves Medical Marijuana Bill; Rally In Support Next Wednesday
Last week, a subcommittee of the South Carolina House Medical, Military, Public and Municipal Affairs Committee approved legislation that would create a compassionate medical marijuana program in South Carolina, with a 3-1 vote! If you are a South Carolina resident, please email both your state representative and senator and ask them to support this legislation.
Potential medical marijuana patients, their caregivers and loved ones, and medical marijuana advocates will be holding a rally at the State House in Columbia next Wednesday in support of H 4037, the South Carolina Medical Marijuana Program Act. If you are free, please consider joining them.
When: Wednesday, May 20 at 11:30 a.m.
Where: South steps of the State House in Columbia (1100 Gervais St.)
The South Carolina Medical Marijuana Program Act, H 4037, would allow patients suffering from a listed condition to use and safely access medical marijuana if recommended by their doctors. This bill is more comprehensive than and addresses the many flaws of the legislation that was passed last year in an attempt to make certain medical marijuana products accessible to a limited class of patients.
