Will Georgia residents be able to grow pot legally for medical purposes?
Currently, it is legal to own and to use marijuana in the state of Georgia. However, it’s illegal to grow it here, or to transport it here. Supporters of medical marijuana are hoping the laws will change.
Supporters of the use of marijuana for medical purposes say it should be a state’s right issue. Georgia state representative Allen Peake agrees.
Peake, who fought for the legalization of medical cannabis oil, believes that legalizing the ability of Georgia residents to grow cannabis oil could go a long way toward helping curtail the opioid crisis.
Currently, the state does allow protection to many people who use cannabis oil to treat medical conditions.
Lawmakers who oppose full legalization want the state to allow the transportation of medical cannabis into the state, but not to allow state residents to be able to grow it.
