On Tuesday, Democratic primary voters in South Carolina approved a non-binding medical marijuana question. With all counties having reported, the unofficial results show the question was supported by an overwhelming 75%-25% margin! The question asked voters if “medical marijuana [should] be legalized for use in cases of severe, chronic illnesses when documented by a physician.”750px-Flag_of_South_Carolina

While this was a non-binding question, meaning it does not change the law at all, the overwhelming support sends a clear message to South Carolina lawmakers, and Democrats specifically, that their constituents support compassionate laws.

Earlier this spring, the South Carolina Legislature took a step toward sensible marijuana laws by passing legislation allowing a limited class of patients to use marijuana low in THC, but it is so incomplete that MPP does not consider South Carolina a medical marijuana state.
