I support the use of medical marijuana and even in the cases of when it can help reduce a person's dependence on opioids. However, I think that the marijuana can be regulated in a way to help get more people access to health care. The excess money can be used in a way that we do not have to raise taxes on the people of South Carolina.
If it can be regulated, then yes! Just like a said, the excess money could South Carolinian s better access to health care and a lower chance of taxes having to be raised.
If the drug is regulated and people can use it in moderation, then I believe that it can benefit South Carolina. We use the money to pay taxes so that South Carolina may not have to see see a tax increase at least in the short term.
Statement regarding automatic expungement of non-violent marijuana possession convictions.
Everyone makes mistakes and deserve another chance at life. If it is a patterning of repeat offenders, then my answer is no.
Medical cannabis is good because it can help reduce the pain and stress of patients who are suffering from pain or those who have a terminal illness. I want the best for our citizens and I would support this action.
