Legislative Battle Over Medical Marijuana Ahead

Members of the S.C.  House and Senate gave Gov. Henry McMaster a number of standing ovations Wednesday night (Jan. 23rd) during his second State of The State Address.  

For the first time in years, a Republican Governor and a Republican legislature are in sync on the major issue facing the state; reforming the state’s public education system.  That is a sign that meaningful reform may be within reach during this year’s legislative session.

It appears though there may be an un-expected battle brewing at the Statehouse this session, over efforts to legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
