Columbia, S.C. (WSPA)- A South Carolina CBD and hemp company run by veterans will host a press conference Tuesday morning calling for medical marijuana legislation to be passed.

The CBD and hemp company Carolina Dream is run by former Marine Cody Callarman.

Callarman said he legally used cannabis in California for pain and PTSD.

Callarman is now leading the charge by gathering other veterans, doctors and supporters to speak at the Capitol building regarding the legalization of medical cannabis.

In 2022, the State Senate passed a medical marijuana bill with a 28-15 vote but the bill was shut down in the House.

A poll in 2021 found that 72 percent of South Carolina residents support the legalization of medical marijuana.

Carolina Dream will hold the press conference at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in the South Carolina Capitol building lobby in Columbia.
