MUSC’s Inaugural Medical Cannabis Conference by Katherine C. Mangus Lohr

 On September 28, 2018, I attended the Inaugural Update on Medical Cannabis at MUSC.  I gained an understanding of the current scientific and anecdotal data related to medicinal cannabis.  I also learned that South Carolina has a unique opportunity to further science, assert its state rights, pass conservative medical cannabis legislation, create a niche economy, and most importantly, help citizens who are suffering and unable to obtain relief from conventional pharmaceuticals.

SC Primary Elections – Gubernatorial Candidates

The Primary elections in South Carolina are tomorrow and the polls are open beginning at 7am. This is an opportunity for medical cannabis advocates to vote for like-minded candidates seeking ballot spots for the November general election for state governor and members of the South Carolina House of Representatives. Since South Carolina does not have voter registration by party, when checking in, voters will be asked which primary they wish to vote in. If it’s the Democratic primary, one of two advisory questions on the ballot will ask if the voter supports a state law allowing doctors to prescribe medical marijuana. The Republican primary does not include any medical marijuana questions.

What is “seed to sale tracking”?

“Seed to sale tracking” is an inventory control system that state regulators use in medical marijuana programs to track the cultivation, processing, and sales of medical cannabis to patients. As the name suggests, this type of system ensures that strict inventory control measures are in place from the moment a cannabis seed is planted through to the sale of cannabis produced from that plant.

Crossover Date Has Arrived

There are several key dates during the often-complex process of passing legislation, and today, April 10, is one of them. Known as the “crossover date,” it is the date by which a bill must pass out of the chamber from which it started. If a bill starts in the House, it has pass out of the House by April 10. If a bill started in the Senate, it would need to pass out of the Senate by that same date.

Opioids by JD Shepherd

In 1990, the word of the year was Bushlips. Not a flattering term, it was a reference to President HW Bush’s reneging of the promise of “no new taxes!” That same year I sat in a DARE class, led by a Gainesville city police officer, and learned all about the dangers of cocaine, crystal meth, LSD, mushrooms and of course marijuana.
