The Evolving Cannabis Landscape in South Carolina
As cannabis laws loosen across America, South Carolina finds itself at a crossroads. In 2021, the South Carolina Compassionate Care Actlegalized cannabis use for medicinal purposes. While dispensaries are still pending regulatory approval, businesses like High Rise are capitalizing early on cannabis-infused consumer products. They aim to destigmatize cannabis consumption through quality and innovation. South Carolina’s journey toward embracing cannabis culture is just beginning. But the tides are turning as lawmakers and entrepreneurs recognize the health, economic, and social benefits of a well-regulated industry.
With a hazy but promising future, South Carolina is poised to become a model for progressive cannabis legislation in the traditionally conservative South. When we look back at South Carolina’s cannabis progress, it’ll be hard to deny that companies like High Rise were a big part of that progress.

The Founders’ Review
At the grand opening of the High Rise Dry Bar earlier this summer, the founders talked about their reasons for creating the innovative dry bar. “It is cannabis themed, but it is also a wellness bar. We’re going through a big nonalcoholic movement right now. A lot of Generation Z isn’t drinking anymore, and we are getting more and more educated on the medicinal benefits of the hemp plant,” said High Rise and Charleston Hemp Collective founder Matt Skinner, while speaking to BevNet.
“Some people are looking for it for the recreational side of it, but a lot of people just want something that makes them feel good as an alternative to alcohol,” said Skinner.
Chris Long, Co-owner of High Rise Dry Bar, talked about the social benefits of opening the location in South Carolina. “We have opened a cannabis dry bar as a safe space for people to have a social experience without having to have alcohol…The bar gives them an alternative to having to drink alcohol and, again, be in a safe space and not be around people that drink.”
“I have been sober for six years from alcohol, and so…to be part of this is so special for me. If you had told me that I would be here, in this bar, six years ago, in a safe and fun space, I would not believe it,” said Chris Long.
The Future of Cannabis Bars
Customers at the High Rise Dry Bar have been raving about their experiences. In an interview with PostandCurier, a local resident said, “This place is so good, and as you can see, I finished my drink real quick.”
As the cannabis landscape keeps evolving in America, businesses like the High Rise Dry Bar will be at the forefront of this movement.
The bar is open Sunday-Wednesday, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Thursday-Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
