Georgia Marijuana Legalization
In 2015, cannabis oils with concentrates of less than 5% THC were legalized for individuals who hold a Georgia medical marijuana card and suit the qualifying medical conditions. However, the use and possession of any forms of marijuana recreationally remains illegal. Qualifying individuals may be prescribed medical cannabis only in the form of low THC oil.
The Georgia Department of Public Health issues a “Low THC Oil Registry Card” to qualified persons, with which these persons may legally possess up to 20 fluid ounces of “low THC oil” at a time. In 2022, registered patients in Georgia are still waiting for licensed dispensaries to open in the state, but medical marijuana oil will be available for purchase once the GA Commission issues Dispensing Licenses around the state.
