South Carolina: Call your state senator in support of medical cannabis
After you type in your contact info, check out our sample script and talking points. If you or a loved one have a serious medical condition and could benefit from medical cannabis, consider including that information and what this bill would mean to you. Once you’ve decided what you want to say, call the phone number that’s displayed with your senator’s name or click on the button for the system to call your phone and connect you. You will probably speak to a staffer, not the state senator. If you get voicemail, please leave a brief message.
Don’t be intimidated. Your lawmakers represent you and they want to hear where their constituents stand on important issues.
Here are some tips for your call:
Be respectful. How you speak to legislators and staff is as important as what you say.
Be succinct. Please be respectful of staffers’ time by getting right to the point.
Be clear. Make sure they know why you’re calling and what you want them to do — help pass S. 150, the Compassionate Care Act. Stay on topic and focus only on the need to pass medical cannabis legislation. Please do not raise the issue of adult-use legalization.
