Medical cannabis bills back before lawmakers in 2019

 

Last update: February 12, 2019

 

The legislative effort to pass the South Carolina Compassionate Care Act is again underway in South Carolina. Legislative champions, Sen. Tom Davis and Rep. Peter McCoy, have introduced measures this year that continue the legislative effort to establish a comprehensive and well-regulated program for seriously ill patients to get access. These measures gained a great deal of support from lawmakers last year, and that work to build support continues.

If you are a resident of South Carolina, make sure your lawmakers know of your continued support. For a closer look at the policies, Sen. Davis’s bill is available online here, and Rep. McCoy’s measure in the House is available online here. For a summary of many of the key provisions of the measure, click here. We’ve also created a handout on medical cannabis and its benefits in South Carolina, available online here.

And finally, if you would like to get involved, please contact our allies at Compassionate S.C. for ways you can contribute!
