Sick people can now use medical marijuana in Georgia

Georgia state governor has signed a measure to allow use of non-smoking form of medical marijuana in the treatment of seizure disorders, multiple sclerosis.

 Other patients with cancer, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Crohn's disease, mitochondrial disease, Parkinson's and sickle cell disease are also entitled to medical marijuana after passing the screening process.

The law allows the use of cannabis oil with a low concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical in marijuana that produces a high, Governor Nathan Deal said in a statement.

Georgia is the 12th U.S. state to approve the non-euphoric marijuana oil, St. Pierre said. Twenty-two states and the District of Columbia allow regular marijuana to be smoked for medicinal purposes.
