The state of Georgia began the process of issuing medical marijuana cards Tuesday.
In March Governor Nathan Deal signed an executive order directing state agencies to prepare to enact the bill.
The law allows the use of cannabis oil for treatment of seizure disorders cancer and other diseases.
We have featured a Dalton family whose daughter Zoe could benefit.
Zoe’s mother says she registered for the card this morning.
Sheli Gilley, Daughter Has Seizures, said “we are very excited and very hopeful. Zoe has so many seizures. We are really hoping and praying that it will reduce the amount of seizures that she has.”
Sheli says her daughter was recently diagnosed with a rare genetic syndrome that makes seizures hard to control.
She says they expect to pick up the cannabis oil in a few weeks.
The registry cards are $25 and valid for two years.
