SC's Mace Wins Primary; SRA Pushes On -- Attacked by her opponent for her pro-cannabis work-- first-term Congresswoman Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) survived the June 14th primary challenge, and will likely be re-elected in November.  As author of the SRA (States Reform Act) Mace fought backlash from South Carolina's Republican party, Donald Trump, and opponent Kate Arrington, who demanded that Mace "get a drug test."  But U.S. Cannabis Council executive director Steve Hawkins says the contest-- in deep-red S.C. shows "politicians who bet against reform and use cannabis as a punchline do so at their own peril,"  adding  "Arrington thought GOP primary voters would abandon Mace over cannabis reform, but that's an outdated playbook.   Cannabis reform enjoys growing and bipartisan support across the nation," said Hawkins.
         Charleston businessman and boyfriend Patrick Bryant asked Mace(who said yes) to marry him during the Spring campaign, making this her third marriage. Following up on his luxury cigar venture in S.C., Bryant is also the founder of "Shine Papers," a 24-karat gold rolling paper.  Mace says she became a champion or medicinal MJ after it helped her heal from a teenage rape.  Prospects for a Washington hearing on her SRA bill remain  elusive.  See her victory comments at:
