Georgia: Legislation To Expand CBD Medical Program Becomes Law

Update: Gov. Nathan Deal signed into law Tuesday a measure that expands the state’s medical marijuana program.

Update: SB 16 has passed both legislative chambers and now awaits the signature or veto of Georgia Governor Nathan Deal. Should he fail to take action regarding the bill, SB 16 will become law absent his signature.

SB 16, a bill to expand Georgia’s CBD-exemption law is awaiting action from Gov. Nathan Deal.

The bill expands the qualifying pool of patients eligible to possess CBD extracts to include those with autism, epidermolysis bullosa, AIDS, Tourette’s Syndrome, severe peripheral neuropathy, or who are in hospice care. The law also exempts qualified patients registered to use CBD in other states. 

The measure does not provide a regulated, in state supply source where patients may legally obtain CBD-oil formulations.
