Georgia Medical Cannabis Bill “Haleigh’s Hope Act”

Thanks to a lot of hard work from various advocacy groups and activists Georgia State Representative Allen Peake (R) and others introduced House Bill 885 on Tuesday. The bill amends the old medical research law passed in 1980 – formerly Controlled Substance Therapeutic Research Act – buy expanding the medical conditions for which cannabis can be used.

Georgia CARE Project’s “Guide to Enacting Medical Marijuana in Georgia” was cited by Rep. Peake as being helpful in drafting the legislation and he thanked Georgia CARE director James Bell for his help in educating the lawmakers and public.
