Georgia Lawmaker Files “medical marijuana” Bill HB-1 for 2015

In what appears to be a publicity stunt Georgia state lawmaker Rep. Allen Peake prefiles what he claims is a “medical marijuana” bill (HB-1). Peake was first in line to file legislation Monday morning. The bill appears to be the former House Bill 885 “Haleigh’s Hope Act” that went down in flames in the 2014 legislative session. Virtually all of the language of the bill have been stricken through leaving the legislation undetermined.
