January Update

The SC Compassionate Care Alliance is an organization founded by patients and parents of chronically ill children who support the regulated use of cannabis for its medicinal and therapeutic benefits.  Our mission is to educate patients, communities, medical professionals and law makers about medical cannabis through social media and educational programs.  We have produced many high-quality events across the state, often partnering with universities, in order to provide education about medicinal cannabis, legislation and advocacy. 

One of our achievements over the past two years has been partnering with the Medical University of South Carolina to produce the Annual Update on Medical Cannabis, which provides eight hours of CME and CLE credits with curriculum specific to medical cannabis. 

Additionally, when it seemed that our law makers debating potential legislation were struggling to understand various concepts entailed in a medical cannabis program, we produced visits to a cultivation facility, processing laboratory and dispensary in the state of Maryland for them. We coordinated and funded three trips which showed our lawmakers how regulated licensees operate. Finally, our lawmakers met with Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission Director, Will Tilburg, in-person to gain a better understanding of how a well-regulated medical cannabis program operates.

As we move into 2020 and the second year of our two-year session, we have a real sense of urgency for passage of the SC Compassionate Care ActPatients in South Carolina are suffering and starting over with a new bill in 2021 just isn’t an option!  “Let us have the opportunity to live life…”
