South Carolina Medical Cannabis Legalization Bill Announced

South Carolina State Senator Tom Davis willsc soon introduce legislation to legalize medical cannabis, according to an announcement made at a meeting of the state’s Medical Marijuana Study Committee.

“I am learning for the first time all of the medicinal benefits that marijuana can be used for,” says Davis, referring to testimony given at the committee where he heard from people explaining that it helps with pain, autism, glaucoma and more.

A medical cannabis bill sponsored by Davis was approved earlier this year, which allows children with seizure disorders to enroll in clinical trials, allowing them to use the cannabis compound cannabidiol. The new bill, however, will be much broader. According to Davis, the bill would legalize the whole plant for medical use – not just an individual compound – and would allow for dispensaries to distribute the medicine.

The proposal will be filed and discussed during the upcoming legislative session, which begins on January 13th.

    I’ve suffered from a opened skull TBI for nearly 15yrs. As well as hairline fractures in my neck. I tried the pharama route, but never liked the way the pills treated me. I turned to the natural way to help my pain anxiety, and depression sometime ago. My quality of life improved drastically upon the switch other than the fear factor of being arrested for doing something that helps. I’ve been hopping and praying that sc and the nation would open it eyes to the big picture, and help those in need who don’t want to take the poison pills that eat way at you. I’m a true south carolinean who doesn’t want to move from where I was born and raised to seek out what truly helps. Thank you mr. Davis for trying to help those of us who chose to stay away from narcotic pain pills
