Amend Georgia Senate Bill 16

This petition had 326 supporters

In the State of Georgia, under Senate Bill 16, medical marijuana is legal to a limit. The limits are very tight and restrict cannabis use to Low-THC Oil that is under 5% THC. Not all the patients who deserve the right to use medical marijuana are allowed too. The current list of conditions that can receive the oil are:

  • Cancer
  • seizure disorders
  • Chron's Disease
  • ALS
  • multiple sclerosis
  • mitochondrial disease
  • Parkinson's disease
  • sickle cell Anemia
  • Autism
  • Alzheimer's
  • peripheral neuropathy
  • autoimmune disease
  • Tourette's syndrome
  • Epidermylosis Bullosa

There are lots of other illnesses that could use medical marijuana and be heavily benefited from it. A list of conditions that could use medical marijuana are: 

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Chronic pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Anorexia
  • Arthritis
  • Glaucoma
  • Migraines

There are lots of positives that could come from medical marijuana in the state of Georgia. The local government could gain tax revenue with taxes placed on businesses and users of marijuana. There are symptoms of marijuana like anxiety, lowered reaction time, and memory problems, but we believe with putting limitations of doctors allowed to prescribe medical marijuana should make sure it is used in a respectful manner. The age limit should be 18 & up to get medical marijuana, but minors can receive a prescription if their parents come with them. Marijuana should be allowed in the form of flower, concentrates, topicals, and tinctures but no edibles. Edibles can be eaten by children in the house and that could lead to a bad situation. The laws for marijuana should stay the same with non-medical patients.
