Georgia Medical Cannabis Officials Weigh Response To DEA Threat Against Pharmacies, Including Possible Lawsuit

Georgia is the first state to pursue a plan to distribute through pharmacies

Officials at the meeting generally said the letters stand in the way of expanding medical marijuana access to patients, with one calling on supporters to contact Congress about the issue and another alluding to potential litigation the state may file against DEA over the dispute.
