State Cannabis Tracker – South Carolina: MMJ Legalization Bill Advances in SC, but Passage Unlikely

A measure to make medical marijuana legal in South Carolina cleared a key committee vote this week, but its sponsor says the bill’s chance of becoming law isn’t very good.

The proposal was approved Thursday in the Senate Medical Affairs Committee with an 8-6 vote, the Independent Mail of Anderson, S.C. reported.

“It is not going to get passed this year unless some sort of miracle happens,” however, the bill’s sponsor, Sen. Tom Davis of Beaufort, said.

Police in South Carolina oppose the bill, and it’s not likely to overcome that opposition, Davis said.

A Mason Dixon poll in January showed 61 percent of South Carolinians were in favor of medical marijuana legalization.
