New ‘Top Docs Radio’ show addresses Georgia’s medical cannabis laws & the low-THC certification process

The latest edition of the Medical Association of Georgia’s (MAG) ‘Top Docs Radio’ show addresses Georgia’s medical cannabis laws and what patients and physicians need to know about the state’s low-THC oil certification process.

It features James “J.” Smith, M.D., who is the medical director of the emergency medicine department at Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville; Stephen Jarrard, M.D., who practices surgery and general medicine in Rabun County; and Georgia Rep. Micah Gravley (R-Douglasville), who sponsored a bill (H.B. 324) that passed in 2019 that will allow the cultivation of marijuana in the state to produce low-THC oil.

They discuss…  

– Georgia’s medical cannabis laws

– How the low-THC certification process works

 What physicians need to know about the low-THC certification process  

– Whether a low-THC certification is the same as writing a prescription
