Bill Filing Press Conference: The Compassionate Care Act

  • Start: January 15, 2019 4:00 pm
  • End: January 15, 2019 5:00 pm

Attention everyone in Support of Medical Cannabis: Let’s get this done! Join advocates from across South Carolina, convening at Tuesday ‘s press conference to announce the bill filing. Patients and caregivers need to band together and show everyone the faces behind the 72% of our population who believe that medical marijuana should be an option for treatment!

What message would it send to legislators when they see masses of patients and caregivers flood the statehouse? It would clearly indicate that NOW is the time to vote yes on the Compassionate Care Act. Patients need legal access to medical marijuana, not only to improve quality of life but to help preserve and lengthen life spans of patients with conditions like:

cancer, multiple sclerosis, a neurological disease or disorder, sickle cell anemia, glaucoma, PTSD, a condition causing a person to be home-bound that includes severe or persistent nausea, or a chronic medical condition causing either severe and persistent muscle spasms or for which an opioid is currently or could be prescribed.

Please dress in business or church attire and come early to allow time to pass through security…the press conference will be past the gift shop under the rotunda at the South Carolina Statehouse. (Use the side door public entrance)
