More About the Compassionate Care Act

Known as the Compassionate Care Act, this bill will allow patients with a qualifying condition to possess and purchase marijuana. Cannabis is considered safer than many prescription drugs, and in fact, it is often more effective. This bill lists specific conditions for a patient to qualify for medical marijuana. Here is a list of the qualifying conditions:

If approved for a qualifying condition, a South Carolina Marijuana Card doctor will help you safely navigate your best treatment options with medical marijuana.

Doctors will meet with patients to evaluate their conditions and recommend cannabis if there is a clear benefit. These certified physicians are required to take medical marijuana education courses, advising patients on proper dosing, potential risks, and modes of administering marijuana.

If approved by the certified marijuana doctor, you will be provided with a written treatment plan and officially recommend for medical marijuana. You will then be registered with the state and able to purchase marijuana products from the 100 dispensaries licensed to sell marijuana.

Patients in South Carolina with debilitating conditions deserve to have the option of medical cannabis under a physician’s care.
