Medical marijuana dispensaries could be days away from opening
Medical marijuana dispensaries in three Georgia cities could be just days away from opening their doors. Jeff Dantre has more.
The board that overseas Georgia’s medical marijuana program voted to issue the state’s first five dispensing licenses to stores in Macon, Marietta and Savannah. Stores could open within days, giving patients a way to legally buy the product they’ve been allowed to use for eight years in Georgia.
Dispensaries will be available only to patients and caregivers who show their Low-THC Oil Registry card and a photo ID. Registry cards can be obtained from the Department of Public Health following approval from a physician to treat several conditions allowed under state law, including seizures, Parkinson’s disease and terminal cancers.
