Georgia State Report Card thumbBackground

In 2015, the Georgia legislature passed HB 1, 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 Dec. 2015, the Commission voted against in state production of medical cannabis.
