How To Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Newport
South Carolina – A marijuana card, or MedCard is a state issued ID card that allows qualified patients access to medical cannabis in accord with state laws. Currently, there is not a path to legalized fully loaded medical marijuana, similar to Florida’s MMJ program, with THC in South Carolina. The state does have a limited High CBD program in place.
Qualified patients in Newport with certain medical disorders are exempt from criminal penalties for using and possessing cannabidiol(CBD) or any form of marijuana that contains 0.9% or less THC and more than 15% CBD. The law protects this limited class of patients and their parents/guardians or caretakers for the possession, use, and sale of marijuana that meets the cannabinoid content restrictions.
