Georgia Legalizes Medical Marijuana

The governor of Georgia signed a bill last week that would make medical marijuana legal in the state.

Before the new medical marijuana bill was codified, a law in 2015 allowed the use of low-level THC oil in the treatment of certain ailments, but the production, sale, or possession of any cannabis was still prohibited.

The new medical marijuana bill now allows for the sale, production, and possession of cannabis as long as you have a license or prescription from a medical professional.

Georgia has also set up a commission to license medical cannabis growers and dispensaries.

Only two industrial-level marijuana growing licenses will be awarded and only two universities in the state will be allowed to research medical cannabis.

As the 33rd state to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes, patients with Parkinson’s, cancer, and PTSD will be able to use cannabis oil as a treatment.
