Our Center is devoted to providing access for Crohn's Disease patients to obtain a Medical Marijuana Card for residents of the  State of Georgia. We are specialists who treat Crohn"s Disease patients and we understand that oftentimes conventional therapies do not provide the symptomatic relief that is desired. With the legalization of Medical Marijuana access we have developed a means by which patients can obtain a card .

 

Georgia Law

Medical Marijuana Cards

Georgia’s medical marijuana law allows certain qualified persons to legally possess up to 20 fluid ounces of “low THC oil,” which is derived from the marijuana plant. It authorizes the Georgia Department of Public Health to issue a “Low THC Oil Registry Card” to qualified persons, which will prove that they are authorized to have the oil and protect them from arrest. 
How does Georgia’s law compare to laws in other states which have adopted medical marijuana? 
Georgia’s law is much more limited than some other states’ medical marijuana laws. For example, it does not legalize the sale or possession of marijuana in leaf form, and it does not authorize retail stores to sell marijuana or products made from the marijuana plant. It does not authorize physicians to prescribe marijuana for medical use. It is intended solely to protect qualified persons from criminal prosecution for possessing low THC oil for medicinal purposes.
