Right now, we have a chance to do something extraordinary. We have a chance to stand up for Georgia families with members who have life-threatening illnesses that are treatable by medical marijuana.
Currently, many Georgia families are faced with an impossible decision: Wait for lawmakers to advance legislation or uproot their families and seek treatment in other states.
This is a decision that no family should have to make.
That's why Better Georgia has launched a petition calling on our legislators to legalize medical marijuana in Georgia.
Sign the petition
With strong support from 69 percent of doctors, the parents of children who suffer from severe seizures and the public, it is time to legalize medical marijuana in Georgia.
A total of 23 states and the District of Columbia now allow for comprehensive public medical marijuana and cannabis programs.
More than one million U.S. patients receive the treatment for a wide range of conditions--from multiple sclerosis and nausea caused by cancer chemotherapy to Crohn's disease and seizure disorders.
CNN's chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta has been vocal in his support for legalizing medical marijuana and doctors across the nation share his professional opinion.
It's not enough for our governor and other state leaders to slow walk clinical trials in Georgia when other states have made much more progress so quickly. Both the science and the support from the medical community are there and now we need real leaders who will take action.
These Georgia families can't afford to wait. And they shouldn't have to.
Tell your lawmakers to support Georgia families who would benefit from legalized medical marijuana.
Thank you,

P.S. Medical marijuana could be a reality for Georgia families who desperately need it. But we need you to add your voice to the conversation and tell everyone you know about this important issue.
