Georgia law (O.C.G.A. §16-12-191) states three components must be present for lawful possession of low-THC oil:
 

  1.  

Georgia’s law is much more limited than some other states. For example, it does not legalize the growing, sale, or possession of marijuana in plant or leaf form. It does not authorize the productionsale, or ingestion of food products infused with low THC oil, or the inhalation of low THC oil through smoking, electronic vaping, or vapor. It does not authorize physicians to prescribe marijuana for medical use. It is intended solely to protect persons with an active Low-THC Oil Registry Card from criminal prosecution for possessing less than 20 ounces of low THC oil for medicinal purposes. 

It depends, only if you lawfully possess a valid registration card issued by another state that allows the same possession of low THC oil as Georgia law and you have been in Georgia less than 45 days. Cannabis programs are state-based, and vary from state to state; there is no ‘reciprocity’ between Georgia and other states for medical cannabis.

The botanical terms can mean the same thing. The legal terms have different meanings.  In most states “medical marijuana” is a legal term that refers to state registration programs for patients to grow, possess, and smoke marijuana; in legal terms Georgia is not a “medical marijuana” state. Growing, possessing, and smoking marijuana are criminal offenses in Georgia punishable by fines and imprisonment. Georgia is a “medical cannabis” low-THC oil patient registry state, which means there is a lawful pathway for patients registered with the Georgia Department of Public Health, after certifying with a doctor or physician, to purchase and possess 20 ounces or less of low-THC oil and products. Georgia does not allow for the sale or possession of marijuana plant material such as flower, leaves, etc..

No. The law does not make the sale or possession of all types of marijuana legal in Georgia. Possession of any form of marijuana by an unauthorized person is, and remains, a violation of state and federal law. Georgia law only authorizes the legal possession of up to 20 fluid ounces of low THC oil by registered patients with a valid Low-THC Oil Registry Card. 

No. It is, and remains, a violation of state and federal law for unauthorized businesses or persons to sell any form of marijuana. Businesses licensed by the Georgia Access to Medical Cannabis Commission may grow medical cannabis for the purpose of manufacturing low THC oil in Georgia. Only Dispensaries licensed by the Georgia Access to Medical Cannabis Commission or the Georgia Board of Pharmacy may sell low-THC oil in Georgia.

How Can You Become Eligible for Medical Marijuana in Georgia?

Obtaining a medical marijuana card in Georgia requires fulfilling specific criteria. Firstly, you must be a Georgia resident and diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition by a physician registered with the state’s program. After an in-person examination, the physician will enter your information into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry if you qualify. You then complete an online application, provide identification and residency proof, and pay a fee. Remember, the use of medical marijuana is strictly regulated, so consulting a healthcare professional and thoroughly reviewing the state’s guidelines is crucial before proceeding.

Qualifying Conditions

These are the qualifying health conditions for medical marijuana treatment in Georgia. It has also been identified that any condition of the same kind or class, a terminal condition, and also chronic nonmalignant pain (if caused by one or more of the qualifying medical conditions listed below or that originates from a qualifying medical condition and persists beyond the usual course of that qualifying medical condition) may qualify for medical marijuana treatment.

Medical Marijuana Access for Minors in Georgia Guidelines and Restrictions

Minors in Georgia can access medical marijuana under specific guidelines and restrictions. Firstly, they must have a qualifying medical condition and be registered with the state’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU). This requires a qualified physician registered with the program to diagnose them and submit their information. Additionally, written consent from a parent or legal guardian is mandatory before the OMMU issues an ID card.

Crucially, minors cannot purchase or administer medical marijuana themselves. A designated caregiver, who must be at least 18, is responsible for these tasks. This caregiver must undergo background checks and complete training before obtaining their own Medical Marijuana Use Registry ID card. Importantly, they are strictly prohibited from receiving any compensation beyond reimbursement for expenses.

Georgia law imposes further limitations. Minors cannot purchase smokable flowers, and only specific low-THC cannabis products or other approved delivery methods are allowed. The caregiver must possess and administer the medication directly, ensuring it’s used safely and according to the doctor’s recommendations.
