The Georgia Medical Cannabis Society, operating as a 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization, recognized a critical need within the medical cannabis patient community. We identified the need to support indigent medical cannabis patients in obtaining essential medical cannabis oil, as the exorbitant costs of this healing remedy posed a significant challenge.
In response to the federal legality constraints surrounding cannabis, we have refocused our mission on offering financial assistance to indigent patients rather than directly providing cannabis medications. Our guiding principle is "Patients Over Profits," and we are committed to educating the public about the myriad benefits of cannabis. Scientific research has consistently demonstrated its ability to combat cancer cells and treat a range of other ailments, positioning cannabis as a versatile and comprehensive healing solution.
Our primary objective is to promote medical cannabis as a holistic approach to medical treatment. Under the banner of #CannaShame, we have taken up the cause to eradicate the lingering stigma associated with cannabis use.
Cannabis stands as a healing, life-saving alternative where many pharmaceutical drugs have fallen short.
The Georgia Medical Cannabis Society is dedicated to ensuring that underserved communities, including but not limited to low-income individuals, veterans, people with disabilities, and previously incarcerated individuals, have equitable access to affordable medical cannabis and medical cannabis cards in full compliance with their respective state laws.
