Members of the Senate Medical Affairs and House Medical, Military, Public and Municipal Affairs Committee have failed to act on legislation, SB 672 and H. 4037, the Medical Marijuana Program Act. The 2016 legislative session has now come to a close.
South Carolina: Lawmakers Fail To Consider Medical Marijuana Program Act
The legislation sought to allow the use of medical marijuana for debilitating medical conditions such as cancer and glaucoma, upon the written request of a provider who furnishes a medical recommendation to the department. It would have also allowed for a registered patient or caregiver to possess up to, “two one-ounce packages of marijuana in leaf form, one ounce of cannabis oil concentrate, or eight ounces of diluted cannabis oil.”
NORML would like to thank those of you who contacted your state lawmakers in support of this legislation.
