  • Sen. Davis: SC's medical cannabis law leaving out people in need

    In an interview with The Island Packet & Beaufort Gazette on Friday, May 20, 2016, Sen. Tom Davis (R-Beaufort) explained why he's so passionate about changing South Carolina's current medical cannabis law -- which he authored two years ago, but says leaves out far too many sick people who would benefit from either cannabidiol, THC, or both. Davis has been taking to the senate floor recently sharing the stories of sick South Carolinians he says are struggling under the state's current law.
