Palmetto Family Council produces accurate, in-depth research to inform South Carolinians – citizens and policy makers alike – on the important policy decisions concerning faith, family and freedom.
We must develop concrete solutions for reshaping our laws, our attitudes and our culture in a way that will lead to a SC where more families thrive.
Our desire at Palmetto Family is not to divide people of good will or demonize anyone taking a sincere position on medical marijuana, but rather to inform the public regarding this issue as it is currently being proposed to the Palmetto State and to give thoughtful, well-researched analysis.
