South Carolina S559 expands on the 2014 state law legalizing industrial hemp by creating the needed mechanisms to put the law into effect and begin planting. The bill must pass through the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee successfully before it can receive a full state senate vote. Take the following action steps to support this important bill.

1. Call the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee Chair, Danny Verdin. Strongly, but respectfully urge him to move S559 forward to a vote in his committee. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.

(803) 212-6230

2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on S559.
