Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) signed a bill Monday legalizing the use of medical marijuana for those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and intractable pain.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Tuesday that the bill adds PTSD and intractable pain to the existing list of conditions eligible for cannabis oil treatment.

Georgia first passed a medical marijuana bill in 2015 and will now cover more than a dozen conditions.

There are roughly 4,000 patients on Georgia’s medical marijuana registry. State lawmakers shut down an expansion to the program in February which would have legalized the harvesting and distribution of cannabis oil.
Currently, only physicians are allowed to approve patients to use small amounts of the oil.

It is still prohibited to grow, buy or transport the drug, The Journal-Constitution reported.

A step in the right direction.

Beat me to it. A lot of what makes Georgia great today can be traced back to Zell.

Shouldn't this be in the GA forum since it's a state wide topic?

Only if it's made legal by the federal government. Like gay marriage.

Moosehd, that would be nice, wouldn't it? I'm not so sure the state would legalize it or if voters would get the option to put it on a ballot though.
