About Cannabis in Atlanta, Georgia

Atlanta is the capital of the U.S. state of Georgia. It played an important part in both the Civil War and the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. Atlanta History Center chronicles the city’s past, and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site is dedicated to the African-American leader’s life and times. Downtown, Centennial Olympic Park, built for the 1996 Olympics, encompasses the massive Georgia Aquarium.

Cannabis in Georgia is legal for limited medical uses in the form of CBD oil, but illegal for recreational use. On April 16, 2015, the non-psychoactive form of marijuana oil (cannabidol oil or CBD oil) was legalized for medical use in the state under HB 1, the Haleigh’s Hope Act. The law allows cannabis oil to be used to treat disorders: cancer, Crohn’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, mitochondrial disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, seizure disorders and sickle cell disease. It allows both children and adults as being eligible for treatment and requires that the oil contain no more than 5 percent THC, but it remains illegal to buy, sell or transport it. THC is the main psychoactive component of the cannabis plant.. It also legalizes clinical trials sought by some senators to further study how the drug works.
