Coming soon, some Georgians will be able to get a medical marijuana card that will allow the possession of 5% THC/CBD oil extracts. Under the recently signed House Bill 1, patients with 8 specific medical conditions will be able to get a recommendation from some doctors which will allow them to register with the state and allow them to possess up to 20 ounces of the medicine. The only catch… there is no legal source for the medicine in Georgia. Patients will have to go to other legalized states and attempt to obtain the medicine and bring or ship it back to Georgia and risk violating other state and federal laws. House Bill 1 also sets up a study commission to look into how Georgia should regulation the cultivation and dispensing the medicine.
The Georgia Department of Public Health has a website ready to provide the information concerning the process as it becomes available.
