A bill in the Georgia Legislature got a committee Ok last week to expand the use of medical CBD cannabis oil in the state.
In addition to using cannabis oil for seizures and other conditions, this legislation, if approved by the full House and Senate and signed by Gov. Nathan Deal, would add Alzheimer’s, AIDS, autism, epidermolysis bullosa, peripheral neuropathy and Tourette’s syndrome.
In addition, any hospice patient could have the oil no matter what their diagnosis.
In 2015, the state approved the possession of having up to 20 oz. of high CBD cannabis oil for cancer, Parkinson’s and epilepsy patients.
