The Joint Study Commission on Low THC Medical Oil Access will hold its second meeting Wednesday.

Co-chair Rep. Micah Gravley (R-Douglasville) and State Senator Matt Brass (R-Newnan) announced details of the Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2018 meeting, which will focus on testimony from various industry organizations as well as law enforcement entities.

“The primary purpose of this hearing is to allow testimony from organizations in regard to legally dispensing the low THC cannabis oil,” said Rep. Gravley.

“As the law currently stands, we have a classic ‘catch 22,’ in that patients are given a choice to break the law or suffer. Although this medicine is technically legal, we have yet to pass legislation on how to dispense the oil to Georgia patients. “

The meeting will be held Wednesday, Sept. 18 from 1 – 3:30 p.m. at The University of West Georgia’s Z-6 building in Carrollton.

Commission meetings are open to the public and meetings will also be streamed online
