In 2015, then-Governor Nathan Deal legalized medical marijuana when he signed House Bill 1, the Haleigh’s Hope Act, into law.

The act specifically legalized the possession of up to 20 fluid ounces of low-THC oil for patients diagnosed with at least one qualifying medical condition.

Several expansions to the act increased the list of qualifying conditions that make Georgians eligible for a medical marijuana card.

A significant milestone occurred in 2019 when Governor Brian Kemp signed Georgia’s Hope Act into law, allowing in-state production, manufacturing, and dispensing of low-THC oil.

Now, Georgians that qualify can purchase select low-THC products in the form of oral capsules, sublinguals, and topicals, from licensed dispensaries.
