WATCH: New PSA Urges Legalized Medical Marijuana Growth in Georgia

At least one Georgia legislator is looking to expand the state's restrictive medical marijuana program.

According to 11Alive News, Macon Representative Allen Peake has released a new public service announcement that aims to expand the current program to a greater number of patients. The video, which is narrated by Air Force veteran and founder of the Veterans for Cannabis organization, also calls for safe, regulated and legal in-state cultivation of medicinal pot. 

Currently, Georgia's medi-pot program only allows patients with eight specific conditions to use low-THC cannabis oil if approved by a doctor and the state. There is no in-state cultivation, meaning that legal patients have to find other ways to obtain the oil.
