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.
