The Georgia Medical Cannabis Society is a 501c3 tax exempt organization and saw there was a need for medical cannabis patients. We saw a need to assist indigent medical cannabis patients obtain necessary medical cannabis oil due to the high prices for the healing medicine. We had to adjust our mission for financial assistance for indigent patients due to the legality of cannabis federally and cannot assist with financially providing cannabis medications to patients. We believe in Patients Over Profits. We try to educate others on the benefits of cannabis. Scientific studies have shown that cannabis kills cancer cells, and is used to treat many other diseases. Cannabis is basically a one stop shop for healing. We strive to promote medical cannabis use as a holistic approach for medical treatment. #CannaShame has become our current call to action to help Remove and Destroy the stigma associated with cannabis use.
Cannabis heals, saves, and helps so many pharmaceutical drugs have failed.
Georgia Medical Cannabis Society works to make sure persons in underserved communities
including but not limited to, low income, veterans, disabled, and previously incarcerated persons
have access to affordable medical cannabis and medical cannabis cards in accordance with the
respective state laws.
