Georgia Marijuana Medical conditions

Georgia’s new medical marijuana law, HB1 Haleigh’s Hope Act, legalizes “low THC oil” for a specified list of medical conditions. The law only allows what it defines as “low THC oil” that contains less than 5% THC, and CBD percentage “equal to or greater than the amount of THC“. It must be in a pharmaceutical container with manufacturer’s label indicating percentage of THC.

The law only allows 8 specifically defined medical conditions. The list is quoted from the bill.

(A) Cancer, when such diagnosis is end stage or the treatment produces related wasting illness, recalcitrant nausea and vomiting;
(B) Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, when such diagnosis is severe or end stage;
(C) Seizure disorders related to diagnosis of epilepsy or trauma related head injuries;
(D) Multiple sclerosis, when such diagnosis is severe or end stage;
(E) Crohn’s disease;
(F) Mitochondrial disease;
(G) Parkinson’s disease, when such diagnosis is severe or end stage; or
(H) Sickle cell disease, when such diagnosis is severe or end stage.
