MACON, Ga. (AP) – A state commission on medical marijuana will soon hold its first meeting in Atlanta.
The Commission on Medical Cannabis was created by a law passed this year permitting people with certain medical conditions to legally possess cannabis oil in-state with their doctors’ approval. It meets June 16 at the state Capitol.
The commission includes Republican state Rep. Allen Peake of Macon.
Some still want laws permitting the federally prohibited plant’s growth in Georgia. They say the recent legislation in Georgia doesn’t protect people while transporting the oil from other states where it can be produced and sold.
