In an overwhelming vote this week, Democratic primary votes in the state of South Carolina have voted to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes.

The advisory ballot measure on Tuesday saw an 81% to 19% margin with over 93% of the precincts reporting.

Though the measure does not change any laws, it surely represents the sentiment of South Carolina in regards to medicinal marijuana and it may put pressure on lawmakers.

The question asked, “Do you support passing a state law allowing doctors to prescribe medical marijuana to patients?”

Former U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles had reportedly insisted that both Republicans and Democrats put the question on the primary ballots but only the Democrats said yes.
