The Status of Cannabis Legalization in South Carolina

Cannabis in South Carolina, United States, is illegal for recreational and medical purposes, but use of low-THC CBD oil is allowed for certain conditions.
The Julian’s Law, took effect in South Carolina in June 2014, establishing legal protection for an extremely narrow class of medical cannabis patients and their designated caregivers. Under the law, licensed physicians can recommend the use of cannabidiol for patients with certain forms of epilepsy that is not adequately treated by traditional medical therapies.

The law is vague on cultivation and dispensing of medical cannabis, leaving patients and providers vulnerable to arrest and prosecution.

Qualifying Patients

  • Must be diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, Dravet Syndrome (also known as severe myoclonic epilepsy of infancy) or any other form of severe, uncontrollable epilepsy
  • Must be unresponsive to traditional medical therapies
  • Must be certified by a medical doctor or doctor of osteopathy licensed by the South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners
  • Must not possess forms of cannabis that contain less than 98% cannabidiol (CBD) or more than 0.9% tetrahydrocannibinol (THC)
