Georgia Medical Marijuana Law
In April 2015, Haleigh’s Hope Act was passed. It allows some seriously ill Georgians to possess oils containing CBD and small amounts of THC.
The Act does not include a way for marijuana to be produced, refined, or distributed within Georgia, leaving patients with no in-state access.
Medical marijuana oil must contain no more than 5% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), and it must contain an amount of CBD (cannabidiol) that is at least equal to the amount of THC.
