Georgia House Passes Medical Marijuana Expansion
Good news in the Peach State! Medical marijuana, now over a year old, is expanding its reach.
The Georgia State House recently decided to back a much broader version of Georgia’s MMJ law.
House Bill 65, sponsored by, yes, a Republican, state Rep. Allen Peake, would double the list of illnesses and conditions eligible for MMJ treatment. It will now include AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease, autism, autoimmune disease, epidermolysis bullosa, HIV, peripheral neuropathy and Tourette’s syndrome.
And it also removes the one-year residency requirement.

Business is booming: Between this store in Oakland and another location in San Jose, Harborside’s sales total $35 million a year. Sales are so strong that Harborside offers free yoga, tai chi and acupuncture to its customers, who must have a doctor’s permission to enter the store.
