It has been a big topic for quite a while now, and also the subject of much controversy - medical marijuana in South Carolina. A bill reintroduced into both houses in our state Tuesday aims to give medical patients a different course of treatment. I talked to a local non-profit, Cannabis Forward about what legislation is floating around the statehouse and what its chances of seeing the light of day in 2019 might be. However, South Carolina's Governor as well as another local non-profit, FAVOR, are not ready to hop aboard the medical cannabis train too quickly.
