Georgia has many residents who work in the health care industry. Their jobs are not easy and their work is to be applauded.

Such accusations happen more often than people may realize.

While marijuana is legal for medicinal use in Georgia -- in the form of cannabis oil -- possessing the drug without a prescription, possessing too much with a prescription, illegally cultivating and distributing the drug are all considered crimes under current state laws.
