S.C.: Medical cannabis bill heads to the House floor

Email and call your representative and urge them to vote YES on S. 150 in the final vote!

This afternoon, the South Carolina House of Representatives’ 3M Committee passed Sen. Tom Davis’ medical cannabis bill, S. 150 — The Compassionate Care Act — in a 15-3 vote! After seven long years, S. 150 is finally headed to the House floor! The Senate already passed the bill in February.

It’s time to double down on our efforts to make sure it gets past the finish line.

Here’s what we need from you:

  • Email your state representative to ask them to vote “yes” on S. 150. Then, follow up with a call. (Our call script and pointers make it easy.)
  • Spread the word to friends and family on social media, and rally them to email their reps.

Too many have fought for years, and we are now in the final stretch to full House passage. Our opponents will be doing everything in their power to defeat this historic legislation — including proposing 1,000 amendments to try to slow down the process. So, we must do everything in our power to make sure S. 150 gets final passage in the South Carolina House of Representatives.

Let your representative know you support allowing the medical freedom that safe, legal access to medical cannabis brings to patients with debilitating conditions. You can read our summary of the bill here.

Together, we can make the idea of a medical cannabis program a reality here in South Carolina. Please have your friends and family around South Carolina have their voices heard! It is up to us to show S.C. representatives that we want the freedom this bill gives patients and doctors to make their own medical decisions.
