Georgia governor to sign medical marijuana expansion this week

Gov. Brian Kemp is set to sign a bill this week that allows medical marijuana patients to buy the cannabis oil they’re already legally allowed to use.

Kemp’s office said he plans to sign House Bill 324 on Wednesday at the state Capitol, which would for the first time legalize the cultivation and distribution of medical marijuana through small growers, state universities and licensed sellers.

The measure was in jeopardy until Kemp helped broker a deal between House and Senate leaders who had struggled to strike a balance between providing access to legitimate patients while preventing illegal marijuana distribution.

In an interview earlier this month, Kemp expressed his support for the measure but said he was torn over whether it was the best way to expand the program.
