Packaging Regulations

Medical marijuana is legal in South Carolina, but there are no specific packaging requirements for it. The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) is responsible for regulating medical marijuana in the state. DHEC has not yet developed any specific packaging requirements, but they are considering doing so in the future.

If DHEC does develop packaging requirements, they are likely to require that medical marijuana be packaged in child-resistant containers. The containers would also likely be required to be labeled with the following information:

  • The name of the product.
  • The name of the manufacturer.
  • The amount of THC in the product.
  • A warning that marijuana has intoxicating effects and may be habit forming and addictive.
  • A warning that marijuana impairs concentration, coordination, and judgment. Do not operate a vehicle or machinery under its influence.
  • A warning that there are health risks associated with consumption of marijuana.
  • A warning that marijuana should not be used by women who are pregnant or breast feeding.
  • A warning that marijuana is for use only by adults 21 years of age and older. Keep out of the reach of children.
    • The universal symbol for cannabis.

The packaging requirements for medical marijuana in South Carolina are still evolving, and it is important to stay up-to-date on the latest changes.
