CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Doctors in South Carolina may soon be able to write a prescription for medical marijuana.
On Tuesday, the Compassionate Care Act will be introduced in the State House.
The bill has the support of the Charleston County Republican Party which voted to support it on Monday.
If passed, doctors could prescribe medical marijuana to patients who may be suffering from chronic conditions like cancer or epilepsy.
It’s being brought forth by two Lowcountry lawmakers, Rep. Peter McCoy and Sen. Tom Davis.
