About Cannabis in Augusta, Georgia

Augusta GA, the Garden City of the South, home of the globally-recognized Masters Tournament, birthplace of Soul Icon James Brown, and home of the US Army’s Cyber Center of Excellence at Fort Gordon. In Augusta, history meets high-tech, sports meets with southern hospitality, industry meets with a growing technically-savvy workforce, and a love of the outdoors and recreation meets with a resurgent urban landscape.

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.
