Medical Professionals to Call for the Passage of Medical Cannabis Legislation
Virtual press conference to be held on Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET
Columbia, SC - January 15, 2021 (Investorideas.com Newswire) South Carolina medical professionals will join together on Tuesday for a press conference to call on the legislature to enact a comprehensive medical cannabis program in 2021.
The press conference is being held as momentum to pass a medical cannabis law grows within the legislature. Last month, Sen. Tom Davis (R) and Rep. Bill Herbkersman (R) pre-filed bills that would create a comprehensive medical cannabis program in the state. The South Carolina Compassionate Care Act (S. 150/ H. 3361) would allow patients with debilitating medical conditions and a doctor’s certification to access medical cannabis from regulated facilities.
Thirty-six states across the country have comprehensive medical cannabis programs, including several Southern states, such as Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, and Virginia. Seventy-three percent of Americans now live in states that allow the medicinal use of cannabis.
What: Medical professionals will call for the passage of S. 150 and H. 3361.
When: Tuesday, January 19, 10 a.m.
