It is illegal to purchase, ship, or grow medical marijuana in Georgia, meaning that patients have no legal method to obtain it, even if they have a card to use it. State lawmakers in 2018 failed to pass House Bill 645, which would have paved the way to legally grow and harvest medical marijuana in Georgia. Even the acts of such Georgia cities as the City of Atlanta and the City of Clarkston, in decriminalizing marijuana, does not legalize its possession and does not give you the right to possess it or to possess firearms while using it.
