State Senate Committee Approves Marijuana Bill

| March 13, 2014

Medical-Marijuana ATLANTA, GA – A state Senate committee has passed a bill that would legalize limited use of medicinal marijuana.

The bill’s language has been tweaked so that Georgians found in possession of cannabis oil would not face charges. The bill currently requires users to obtain multiple clearances before being legally allowed to use the oil.

Although the oil is harvested from marijuana, it doesn’t get the user high.

Senate Health and Human Service Chairwoman Renee Uterman added on to the legislation requiring insurers to cover behavioral therapy for Georgia children 6 and under who have been diagnosed with autism.

The bill has already passed the House and is expected to be presented to the full Senate.
