Georgia has no decriminalization and limited legalization of high-CBD medical marijuana. On April 2nd, 2015, Gov. Nathan Deal signed Haleigh’s Hope Act, or HB 1, into effect. Qualifying patients are allowed to possess up to 20 oz of infused cannabis oils not containing more than 5% THC and an amount of CBD equal to or higher than the THC. There is no legal cultivation of CBD rich plants, and no legal distribution of the CBD oil – patients must import the oil from other legal states.

An attempt to expand the medical marijuana program was attempted in 2016 by Rep. Allen Peake through HB 722. It was denied support by the current governor and the bill died.
