Recommending Cannabis in Georgia

Physicians recommending cannabis must have a certified doctor-patient relationship with someone that you determine to have one or more of the diseases specified in the law. There is a waiver form and certification form that you must have the patient, parent, or legal guardian countersign; keep this form in your files. Patients may bring in partially completed documents, or blank ones. Once this is complete you can fill in your patients information in the Georgia Registry portal which can be found here.

You are not required to certify a patient who has an eligible condition, but you should! State law protects doctors from criminal prosecution for recommending cannabis, so you will not face consequences for the act of helping your patient.
