Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) signed a bill May 7 legalizing the use of medical marijuana for those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and intractable pain.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Tuesday that the bill adds PTSD and intractable pain to the existing list of conditions eligible for cannabis oil treatment.
Georgia first passed a medical marijuana bill in 2015 and will now cover more than a dozen conditions.
There are roughly 4,000 patients on Georgia’s medical marijuana registry.
