On March 1, the Georgia House of Representatives passed House Bill 65, which would widen the legal parameters for medical use of marijuana, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The bill, which passed 156-6, is sponsored by Representative Allen Peake (R) would allow for use of low THC oils by medical patients suffering from a wide range of diseases such as cancer, Crohn's disease and Tourette syndrome. 

The bill would remove a one-year residency requirement and also allow registered card holding patients from other states with low THC oil laws to possess the medication in Georgia, according to the AJC.

The bill will now move on to the Georgia Senate were if passed it will move to the governor's desk to either be signed or vetoed.
