About Sensible South

A 501(c)(4) non-profit organization, Sensible South is a coalition of patients, caregivers, medical professionals, public safety officials, community leaders and concerned citizens who are committed to providing people with serious illness access to cannabis as an alternative treatment.

Sensible South advocates for common sense medical cannabis regulations that limit the number of qualifying health conditions, place restrictions on consumption form, establish tightly controlled manufacture and distribution systems and emphasize scientific research.

Sensible South does not support adult use recreational consumption or liberal regulatory regimes that allow easy patient access.

“Marijuana has an extremely wide acute margin of safety for use under medical supervision and cannot cause lethal reactions … Greater harm is caused by the legal consequences of its prohibition than possible risks of medicinal use.”

American Public Health Association

“In our zeal to enforce the law, we too often blind ourselves to the medicinal benefits of natural substances like cannabis…. While I certainly do not support the use of marijuana for recreational purposes, the evidence shows that cannabis possesses medicinal properties that can truly change people’s lives for the better…. And I believe … we would be remiss if we threw the baby out with the bathwater.”

Senator Orrin Hatch, Utah

“As we’re slowly acknowledging the depths of the opioid crisis, which is good, we seldom acknowledge one of the simplest, most effective solutions: medical marijuana, cannabis. Now available in 28 states, largely driven by the voters. Not the politicians.”

Rep. Earl Blumenauer, Oregon
