South Carolina Marijuana Decriminalization Legislation

An important piece of legislation, H.3276 that deals with decriminalizing possession of certain controlled substances, including cannabis, is still pending.

As per the proposed measure, possession of up to 1 ounce of cannabis will now carry a civil penalty, first-time offenders will be fined with $100-$200 whereas second offenses will carry a fine between $200-1,000.

A separate measure, H-3444, deals with removing all the civil as well as criminal penalties for possession of cannabis (up to 1 ounce) for veterans that have been diagnosed with PTSD.

As per the existing state law, all such offenses are classified as criminal misdemeanors and carry a penalty of up to 30 days of jail time and a maximum fine of $2,000 for the first offenses, whereas subsequent offenses are punishable with a maximum of $2,000 fine and jail time of up to 1 year.
