Sen. Tom Davis:
Sponsors S. 212, the medical marijuana bill in the South Carolina Senate
[Q Notes]

Patients and advocates from across South Carolina will gather at the State House on Tuesday for a citizen lobby day in support of medical cannabis legislation.

At 11 a.m. ET, several lawmakers will join them for a news conference near the African-American History Monument on the east side of the State House. The patients and advocates will then visit with legislators to urge them to support the South Carolina Compassionate Care Act.

The South Carolina Compassionate Care Act (S. 212 and H. 3521), introduced by Sen. Tom Davis and Rep. Peter McCoy, would allow patients with certain debilitating conditions to access medical marijuana if their doctors recommend it.

The Department of Health and Environmental Control would regulate and license medical cannabis cultivation centers, processing facilities, dispensaries, and independent testing laboratories. The department would also issue registration cards to qualifying patients and their caregivers.
