Georgia Marijuana Program Overview
Type of program: Medical
Georgia’s House of Representatives passed HB-1, the “Haleigh’s Hope Act” in 2015, effectively legalizing the use and possession of low THC (5% max) for patients with eight specific qualifying conditions. The bill was expanded in 2017 to include six more conditions, and additionally, two more in 2018 under HB-65.
At present, qualifying medical marijuana patients in the state of Georgia do not have access to legal cannabis oil. This means they have to purchase it illegally. However, patients with a Georgia medical marijuana card will not be prosecuted for possession of under 20 fluid ounces of marijuana oil with a 5% THC content.
