Medical marijuana oil sales signed into Georgia law

Gov. Brian Kemp on Wednesday signed into law a bill to grow and sell medical marijuana in Georgia, a milestone for patients who are allowed to use the drug but had no way to buy it.

The new law creates a new but limited marijuana industry in Georgia, with up to 9 acres of indoor growing space for cultivation of medical marijuana oil. The oil will then be sold to the state’s growing number of registered medical marijuana users — 9,500 so far.

Georgia has allowed patients approved by a physician to possess cannabis oil since 2015, but until now, state law prohibited buying, selling or transporting the oil. Those restrictions forced patients and their families to buy the drug through the mail, by driving to other states or from friends.

“All they simply want is to be able to help their kids get well,” Kemp said before signing the bill at the state Capitol. “We’re ensuring these families can purchase what works for their loved ones without creating a slippery slope that undermines our values.”
