The Georgia Low THC Cannabis Oil registry is now online, according to an Op-Ed by Dr. Brenda Fitzgeral, Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Public Health.
As one might imagine, setting up the registry was no simple task. First the Department of Public Health (DPH) had to address the requirement in HB 1, or the “Haleigh’s Hope Act,” that physicians certify their patients suffer from one of eight conditions. Working closely with the Georgia Composite Medical Board — which created a waiver for patients to sign (acknowledging this product is not FDA approved) and a certification form for physicians to fill out — we developed an electronic system that allows doctors to input patient information quickly and securely through an online portal.
All of this leads, of course, to the question: “How do I get a card?” The basic steps to obtaining one are as follows:
1. Patients and caregivers of patients who believe they may be eligible should consult with their physician about the possibility of obtaining a card allowing them to possess up to 20 fluid ounces of low THC oil within the state of Georgia.
2. If approved by the physician, the patient or patient’s caregivers’ information will be entered into DPH’s secure “Low THC Oil Registry” and a card(s) will be issued.
3. Patients and caregivers will be notified when the cards are ready for pickup (within 15 business days) from one of several public health offices geographically spread around the state.
“Low THC Oil Registry” cards cost $25 – the standard fee for obtaining a vital record in Georgia – and will be valid for two years from the date issued. After that time, cardholders will need to again consult with their physician about their continued eligibility and to request that they update and confirm their information into the registry.
