On this edition of South Carolina Lede, host Gavin Jackson discusses the future of medical marijuana in South Carolina with Post and Courier Statehouse Reporter Andy Brown and South Carolina Public Radio's own Statehouse Reporter Russ McKinney. Debate over the issue rages on with advocates touting massive statewide support to legalize the drug for a handful of medical conditions while opponents, especially law enforcement, say a recently introduced conservative bill to allow prescription marijuana poses risks to the state.

Russ McKinney then sticks around to quiz Gavin with South Carolina trivia in this week's Did You Know segment.
