The press conference will be held in the second-floor lobby of the Capitol Building and it will begin at 10:00 am. We need a huge turnout to demonstrate the majority of people in South Carolina do not want our state to be taken over by the Marijuana Industrial Complex.

The Religion is Essential bill from the Senate Judiciary Committee to the Senate floor. The ESA bill (Education Savings Account) passed the Senate and is on the way to the House. Calls to your Representatives and Senators make a difference! Your prayers, your engagement, and your willingness to take a stand is the catalyst behind getting these bills moving, giving them a chance to be passed into law. Now, let’s come together and stand against the spread of marijuana in our state!
