State House Speaker Ralston Supports Putting Forth Medical Marijuana Bill
"You know it's simply a measure that allows families in Georgia that have needs to deal with those needs and not be prosecuted," he says. "And so it's a priority of ours and we're going to move on it."
State Representative Allen Peake has introduced a bill that would allow the use of cannabidiol, which has low levels of THC, the ingredient that makes a person "high". The oil is used to treat seizures. Currently, families with children suffering from severe seizures have to move to Colorado to get treatment using the material.
