Sheriff's association opposes medical marijuana bill in GA
ATLANTA (AP) - A sheriff's association is opposing a bill that would legalize cannabis oil for people with cancer, seizure disorders and other chronic diseases.
The executive director of the Georgia Sheriffs' Association, J. Terry Norris, said his members are concerned the law would expand.
Norris told WSB-TV (http://bit.ly/1CLhML9 ) the association did not object to allowing children with seizure disorders to use cannabis oil. However, Norris said the number of patients who would get access to the drug under the proposal keeps expanding.
State Rep. Allen Peake said the oil cannot be smoked and will not get its users high.
