Amend the bill, as and if amended, by striking Section 44-53-2290(B) and inserting:

/(B) A pharmacist is not subject to arrest by state or local law enforcement, prosecution or penalty under state or local law, or the denial of a right or privilege, including, but not limited to, disciplinary action by the South Carolina Board of Pharmacy of any other occupational or processional licensing entity, for dispensing an authorization for cannabis products as authorized by state law. A pharmacist may not be sued for malpractice solely as a result of dispensing a qualifying patient's medical cannabis products in accordance with this article, but this section shall not be construed to prevent a pharmacist from being penalized or sued for violating the standard of care or for any violations of this article, including but not limited to, dispensing medical cannabis products to a person who does not have a cannabis certification card. /
