GEORGIA AUTHORIZES PHARMACIES TO DISPENSE CANNABIS

Georgia is allowing around 14,000 registered patients to access low THC oil at pharmacies, with around 120 pharmacies applying for approval. The Georgia Board of Pharmacy is currently inspecting these pharmacies before granting approval. In 2019, the General Assembly approved the distribution of low THC oil, and the board has finalized safety and distribution rules. Governor Brian Kemp recently approved these rules, making Georgia the first US state to sell medical cannabis products at independent pharmacies. Independent pharmacies will offer low THC oil, rendering it easily accessible for the majority of the state's population. Patients must present a state-approved registry card, which can be obtained with a doctor's approval. The new opportunity will benefit patients in remote areas who may not have access to a dispensary, providing caring, knowledgeable pharmacists in their communities. This move aligns with the growing acceptance of medical cannabis as a legitimate form of treatment and may help combat the illegal sale and use of cannabis in Georgia.
