Pivotal SC Medical Marijuana Poll

New data has surfaced from the public opinion polling and political strategy firm located in Atlanta, the Trafalgar Group. According to the survey, only 18.8% are opposed to any form of legalization – medical or otherwise,  and 4% of those feel it is inevitable anyway. The most impactful takeaway is that likely South Carolina voters in 2020 are 51.1% “more likely” to support a legislator voted in favor of a bill to legalize medical marijuana. Of those, 31.5% said they would be “much more likely” to support their senator or house member. Alternately, only 18.4% said they would be “less likely” to support a lawmaker who votes for medical marijuana and only 12.1% said they would be “much less likely.”

World Health Organization Recommends International Reclassification of Marijuana

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) has formally recommended that cannabis and cannabis related substances be removed the schedule IV of controlled substance and lowered to Schedule I. After officially assessing all available evidence, they have issued their recommendations on the therapeutic value and potential harm related to cannabis and cannabis resin. This is groundbreaking and a rebuke to the original recommendation in 1961, classifying cannabis as a Schedule IV by the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs. The Single Convention encourages governments across the globe to prohibit the production, distribution, and use of drugs in this Schedule, so this change in the WHO’s committee is significant.

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.
