To this day, Georgia counts itself among the 24 states that have yet to legalize medical marijuana. A new bill seeks to change that, however. According to WSBTV, Senator Curt Thompson from DeKalb County filed a bill last December 3 with the intent of making the drug available to those who need it and thereby generate more revenue that can be funneled toward infrastructure and education. His bill closely mirrors Colorado’s marijuana law, presumably because that’s where some families from Georgia obtain medical marijuana.
Should Senator Thompson’s bill weather all opposition and be passed into law, Georgia will be the 24th state to allow medical marijuana dispensaries to operate.
