Georgia Medical Marijuana Laws & Regulations

In 2015, the Georgia legislature passed HB 1, (Haleigh's Hope Act) which created a patient ID card registry and established a list of eight qualifying conditions so that patients may legally possess and use low-THC medical cannabis products. The law places a 5% cap on THC and requires that products have at least 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC. The law does not allow for in-state production or access, but did create the Georgia Medical Cannabis Commission, which was tasked with investigating other state programs in order to come up with a legislative proposal.

In December 2015, the Commission voted against in state production of medical cannabis.
